Happy Thanksgiving From Lake Arrowhead

 

Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to come together. With hurried lives and busy schedules throughout the year, holidays such as Thanksgiving provides the opportunity for togetherness and a day to spend together in a very intentional way. 


While Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has been long celebrated a secular holiday as well. In many cultures Thanksgiving is associated with the Pilgrims and Native Americans symbolizing and celebrating intercultural peace and the sanctity of home and family. Even though Thanksgiving has become secularized and commercialized, we should never forget that the day is rooted in the commitment of our forefathers and foremothers to maintain a thankful heart no matter how painful or challenging of the times preceding this beautiful day. 

Fun Facts :

  • Did you know that it was President Abraham Lincoln who declared Thanksgiving a federal holiday in 1863, during the American Civil War? 
  • Did you know that the turkey became the staple food at Thanksgiving to serve as a reminder of the four wild turkeys that were served at the first Thanksgiving feast? 
  • Did you know that the cornucopia is a symbol of natures productivity? 
  • In the bible the meaning of Thanksgiving reflected adoration, sacrifice, praise or an offering. It begins with acknowledging God as faithful, earnestly giving Him thanks, in advance, for his abundant blessings. 


However or wherever you celebrate, reflect on all of the wonderful things and moments you have had throughout the year. Even when there was pain there was also an immense amount of joy. Let us remember the joy. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hadn't realized it was Abraham Lincoln who declared Thanksgiving a national holiday.  I learned something new today!
