A trip down memory lane- Thanksgiving Origin and History

Thanksgiving is a holiday that commemorates the harvest festival held in autumn by the Pilgrims after their first voyage to America. The date of Thanksgiving was chosen to coincide with the European harvest festivals, which were celebrated at that time of year.

The first recorded celebration of Thanksgiving took place between September and November in America in 1621, when settlers in Plymouth, Massachusetts came together to feast upon what they had harvested from their land. During the eighteenth century, thanksgivings were typically small and simple affairs focused on family and friends rather than large feasts presided over by government authorities. 

However, beginning in the nineteenth century, Thanksgivings began receiving more public attention as celebrations aimed at promoting national unity. Although Thanksgiving was originally a religious observance, it has been secularized over time. 

Today, it is primarily a celebration of food and family unity celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. However, some people still observe traditional rituals such as sharing Christmas stories or prayer sessions before dinner.

How to prettify your Thanksgiving cards

How to prettify your Thanksgiving cards

Making a Thanksgiving card is a fun way to show your loved ones how much you appreciate them. You can choose from a variety of templates or create your own. 

Just make sure that the message is meaningful and heartfelt, and that the design reflects your personality perfectly.

Here are some tips to help you get started.

  1. Choose an interesting font for the text on the card. This will make it easier to read, and people will be able to enjoy reading it even when they're busy cooking dinner!
  2. Use vibrant colors, so everything feels cheerful and festive. Bright green leaves against a pale pink background would be perfect for this occasion!
  3. Think about what images could go best with your text, either as thumbnail photos or larger prints hung in Happy Places around the house. 

A snow-capped mountain might symbolize winter's arrival, while brightly colored flowers might represent Springtime celebrations approaching!  

Whatever you choose, just make sure that it resonates with who you are as a person - personal touches like thanksgiving wishes or funny anecdotes add extra warmth and charm to any holiday greeting!
