Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and be with one another. It is a chance for people to be thankful for everything they have earned, received and done over the last year.
We are able to take a moment out of our busy day to day schedules to relax and remember what the holidays are all about, being with family.
Thanksgiving has been a holiday since the Civil War, celebrated every year since, and will continue to be celebrated.
It’s not just a tradition for one persons family, but for a nation that is appreciative of what we have.
Thanksgiving is a tradition that continues every year, no matter what kind of difficulties, accomplishments, struggles, or joyful times we had through the last year.
We are able to remember the memories and be thankful for what we have, even in the most difficult times. As we get older, it seems that these times together become harder to achieve and with the tradition of Thanksgiving, it’s one of only a handful of times that one can count on family being together under one roof to share a meal.
People look forward to sharing their Thanksgiving traditions with their families over the years to come and show them the importance of being together and being thankful for all that we are able to do and receive.
It’s more than just a day off from school or a reason to go shopping for deals on Christmas gifts.
While the commercialization of Black Friday and the overwhelming need to eat double our body weight continues to grow, the need for Thanksgiving will stand strong and grow with these demands.
Now while the customers needs and wants grow for the selling of Black Friday, which tends to lead stores to open earlier and earlier every year, that will not cut Thanksgiving out of the picture all together.
People have a want and a need to spend time with family and friends and escape from the day to day reality to we all get caught up in.
