Happy Thanks Giving!

24 Nov

To us British folk Thanks Giving Day is just another Thursday in November, but my love for it has blossomed through my research on its existence. To the Americans it is a glorious occasion in which thanks is given to those around them…it began in November 1623, when Governor William Bradford of the 1620 Pilgrim Colony, “Plymouth Plantation” inPlymouth,Massachusettsproclaimed:

“All ye Pilgrims with your wives and little ones, do gather at the Meeting House…and render Thanksgiving to the Almighty God for all His blessings.”

Not only an exciting occasion where gorgeous food takes centre stage but a gathering to celebrate togetherness. Personally I think we have been pushed into a culture were appreciation has diluted and greed has overcome us, and for this reason days like today should be encouraged as a moment to say thank you for all that we have.

I give thanks to my family and friends for keeping me strong during the bad times and pushing me towards happiness and success. What/Who do you give thanks to?

Keep it delicious!
