Thanksgiving Day 2014
Thanksgiving Day is one of the most beloved of American holidays. It is traditionally the busiest travel time of the year as many Americans travel to celebrate the holiday with family. Thanksgiving Day is a time for Americans to return to their roots; i.e., where they grew up.
Thanksgiving Day–a day set aside to count blessings and be thankful for what one has–is slowly being supplanted by increased attention to Black Friday–a day dedicated to greed, covetousness and material possessions.
We hope everyone, while enjoying Thanksgiving Day 2014 with family or friends, will not forget to take a moment and be thankful for what you have.
“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
