Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, but has long been celebrated in a more secular manner as well.
The Roycroft Dictionary
1. A mass said for the repose of the living. 2. Gratitude in the presence of the death of some one else. 3. The irony of fatality. 4. The instinctive and perpetual atavism of the Will-to-Live. (Thanksgiving-Day in the United States is a national holiday on which all the people who during the past year have survived earthquake, fire, housemaid's knee and death, overeat and thus thank God for His favoritism.)

Are you even Filipino if you don't have these babies at thanksgiving? we normally eat a huge array of food.
There are babies that will grow up without their mothers or grandparents.They've missed birthday's or anniversaries, i think about them on Thanksgiving or Christmas and think about what they're going through.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I feel that even for a brief moment, every American gets real about getting grateful, there's power behind stopping to recognize who is important and a blessing to you in life. It takes away the power of stress by focusing on the truth of what counts.
For a lot of years, we would go to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving dinner, and I would always bring my baby Maltese to play with her baby Lab.
It seemed apparent to us that they were basically casing our house, seeing what kind of security measures we had. And so we just decided that we'd take an early Thanksgiving vacation and that's what we did.
