Tradition of Thanksgiving : Thanking God

Thanksgiving is celebrated across the four corners of the world with equal zeal and euphoria. Universally, it conveys the same feeling of being thankful to Lord Almighty for his incessant grace. God has given us so much-fruits and vegetables, crop, flowers and trees, mountains and rivers, sun and moon and skies and stars. We all relish, admire and enjoy them but hardly take out time to say thanks to God for every thing what they have given to us. Hence, Day of Thanksgiving is one such day to thank God for his blessings and benevolence.

In fact, this was a reigious observance rather feast in the real terms of celebration. There was no celebrations until 1623.
