THE STORY OF HAPPY THANKSGIVING

November 26, 2022

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Clients, Friends and Family

May your Thanksgiving be bountiful with reasons to be grateful.

In the United States, Thanksgiving is one of the many beloved holidays celebrated with decorations, food, and loved ones. This holiday can trace its roots back to the 1600s, when the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln declared the fourth Thursday in November a national day of thanks, and in 1941 Congress officially made Thanksgiving a national holiday.

Today, millions of people celebrate Thanksgiving regularly. Many travel to spend the day with loved ones, express gratitude, and share a meal together. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), more than 54 million Americans traveled over 50 miles or more on Thanksgiving.

While it is unknown if the first Thanksgiving dinner actually had turkey as its main dish, nearly 90% of Americans today eat the bird, according to the National Turkey Federation. In fact, turkey has become so synonymous with Thanksgiving that, as part of a national tradition that began in the mid-20th century, the president pardons one or two turkeys each year, sparing them from becoming a meal. Other popular dishes include cranberries, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.

Many Americans also use this holiday to help the less fortunate. Hosting a food drive is common, as is preparing free dinners for the hungry. The sense of community and thanks has given way to many powerful quotes and sayings reiterating these feelings. Below is a collection of quotes, sayings, and puns to get you and your family in the festive mood.
