Thanks for the great gift choices and timely delivery.
Prayers of thanks and special thanksgiving ceremonies are common amongst all religions after harvest and at other times. The Thanksgiving holiday’s history in the USA is deep-rooted in English traditions, dating from the Protestant Reformation. It also has aspects of a Harvest Festival, even though the harvest in New England occurs well before the late November date when modern-day Thanksgiving is celebrated. In Canada, the French Settlers in the area typically had feasts after the harvest season and continued throughout the winter season, even sharing food with the indigenous people of the area.
