A Quick Tip by djevoke

  • Nov 21, 2011
I love Thanksgiving. This will be the first time that Fernando and I will be on our own, so we've decided to do some good. We'll be feeding friends on Tuesday for a friends' Thanksgiving and feeding the homeless on Thanksgiving Day.

My favorite part of this holiday is sitting around a table and giving thanks for what we're grateful for in our crazy lives. It forces everyone to slow down, take stock of the last year and spend a moment or two in gratitude. Be sure to have a hidden stash of tissues, this tradition has been known to bring on the tears from time to time!

Check out my Thanksgiving Playlist and How to Host a Potluck Thanksgiving lists for some music and tips on how to make the most of this holiday :) And everyone, I hope that you have a wonderful holiday surrounded by great food, gratitude and loved ones! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

That Holiday Between Halloween And Christmas
Maybe it's because I love food so much.  Perhaps it is due to the fact that I enjoy watching that giant balloon-infested parade.  Heck, it might just be for the simple reason that I get a day off of work.  Whatever the reason might be, I love Thanksgiving.       What is Thanksgiving, you ask?  Well, if you live here in these good ol' United States of America, Thanksgiving is supposed to be a day where the citizens of our country reflect …

Giving Thanks with/for Beer
So, what’s on your Thanksgiving drink menu? Wine, perhaps? Or maybe Cider? Wait, did you say water?! That’s it—I submit beer as the holiday beverage of choice! Luckily, I’m here to provide pointers about pairing your holiday meal with the perfect beer.      Approach appetizers with a light-bodied beer that goes easy on the taste buds. Try an amber ale or a pilsner—Victory makes the outstanding Prima Pils, but a Sam Adams Boston Lager would do the …

   Thanksgiving day is a good family time in the year to thank all that have lived around with us. The time that i lived in the united states of america I think enjoy this beautiful tradition. Initially I thought that this day meant the gratitude of Europeans to American Indians. Althought many belive was a land grabbing, I think it's best that could happen in the meeting of two cultures. I liked to visit my friends and each one cook something special. I cook for them a Mexican dish called …

About this event

Wiki

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is a holiday celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States. While religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now also identified as a secular holiday.

The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. Though the earliest attested Thanksgiving celebration was on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida, the traditional "first Thanksgiving" is venerated as having occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621.

Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members and friends.
