Keeping the tradition alive.

Thanksgiving is a day that is celebrated in various ways across the globe.

In the U. S. the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is most often traced to the feast celebrated by the Pilgrims in Massachusetts in 1621. Celebrating a good harvest along with the Native Americans that helped them through the previous winter. It was celebrated in different ways until 1789 when President George Washington proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving and prayer.

Today Thanksgiving is celebrated with food and friends and football. Families, extended families, friends and neighbors gather over a celebratory dinner. A typical menu might include turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie but since it is a celebration there may be plenty of other food choices.  Thanks 2 2019

I started the day watching my favorite team, the Chicago Bears, playing the Detroit Lions. It’s an old rivalry. It turned out to be a good game with an outcome that favored the Bears 24-20.   Thanks 2019 1

Later the other members of my family and extended family assembled at the home of John Hudson and Larry Harman to enjoy a feast, swap stories and watch the other football games.

Thanks 3 2019We have been very blessed and have a lot to be thankful for. We should never lose sight of how lucky we are to have someone to share our good fortune.

This year it seems like Thanksgiving was a bit overshadowed by Christmas. That is too bad, because Thanksgiving is an important holiday.

But now that we have finished our turkey and cranberry sauce, we can start our Christmas shopping.

That was a good game. I ate too much then sat down and watched the game.

Joseph, Sounds like a great day for your and your family!  I agree it's a bit of shame it was so late this year that Christmas seemed to have started well ahead of this holiday!
