Let's be thankful to our Lord on Thanksgiving
Hola! Thankgiving Day (also called Turkey Day) is an one day annual holiday that we get to thank our Lord for the stuff that we have at the end of the harvest season. Giving thanks is what this special day is meant for. The pilgrims were thankful to the Tisquantum (better known as Squanto), who was one of the two Native American Indians that assisted the pilgrims after their first fall in the New World. He taught them the art of growing corns and catching eel. It is believed that without his help the pilgrims could have survived in the New World.

So let's freak out for a memorable celebration for the day with lots of special dishes -- especially with an yummy preparation of turkey. Let us start of the day by reading a wonderful thanksgiving note. This is what I've planned to read:

How great is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you,
which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.
Bible -- Psalm 31:19

The Journey On The 17th Century Vessel
How can I forget the story that I read somewhere about the journey and life of the pilgrims. They had to spend two long months at the sea to reach the strange new world, and had barely survived once they reached there. Yes, the story is really pathetic. Ever wondered how the Pilgrims reached America and lived to celebrate the first Thanksgiving?

The voyage of 1620 from England to America was more than 3000 miles and was beset by the severe storm of Autumn. The journey over the vast Atlantic Ocean on a 17th century floating vessel was really hard and a story that is never to be forgotten. Mayflower was the famous ship that took the pilgrims to Plymouth Massachusetts from Plymouth England.

The First Feast of Thanksgiving
Hi friends ! Don't know why this morning my mind became filled with the thoughts of the pilgrims and their Native American guests had to eat at the first feast. Ever wondered what actually those people had to eat at the first feast? Well, although the historians are not completely sure about the exact menu, yet it can be said for sure that the pilgrims and their Native American guests were not gobbling up pumpkin pie, nor they had turkey, corn, cranberries in their menus or played with the mashed potatoes.

However, the couple of items that the historians could say with certainty were venison and wild fowl, as mentioned in the primary sources.

Thanksgiving Prayer
Thanksgiving Day, being celebrated in November, is peeping through the horizon.

Prayer is one of the most significant part of this fun filled day. Although there is no official "Thanks to The Lord", but we have been offering prayers of gratitude since the time immemorial -- when the American Tradition had started, much before 1620. Not forgetting that our Lord in the heaven has provided us everything that we need -- food, shelter and happiness let us start up the day with a beautiful prayer.

Thanksgiving Celebration
Although a great section consider thanksgiving as a kickoff of the holiday season, yet in its very own right, Thanksgiving day is a day to celebrate, as it commemorates settlers' first successful harvest feast. Macy's Thanksgiving parade -- one of the most famous Thanksgiving Day event of the nation, is hosted by New York City on 23rd of November.

The other great Thanksgiving Day parade worth viewing takes place in Philadelphia. One of the most wonderful viewing spot is at the Museum of Art. Along with the mind blowing marching bands and floats, the list of events also includes long-running parade that use to feature soldiers and dinosaurs. It also features Santa and Mrs. Claus riding in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. Its really awesome and enjoyable.
