As the holidays come up, in particular Thanksgiving you begin to start thinking of things or people you are most thankful for. A little background history, In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Native Americans shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today was one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries , days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. To me, thanksgiving is more than just food, of course I love the food that is served but I love this time because my whole family comes and it’s probably the only times that we sit all together as a family and eat. Usually we don’t sit together and eat because my dad works late and sometimes my mom will work late as well, so this is why I would cherish this moment to the fullest.
The big question during this holiday is “what are you most thankful for?” I am thankful for my family and that we are all doing well and we are all healthy, I am thankful that none of us have caught the virus and we continue to stay safe. For my friends who I consider family, I am also thankful for them as well. They’ve been friends for a while but at this point I would consider them family and I am so thankful for everything they do for me and grateful I have them in my life. My little doggies, I am also thankful for them and all the entertainment they give us. I am thankful I have a roof over my head, having food and water, and I couldn’t ask for anything more. Last but not least, for my teachers who teach us everything we need to know to be successful, thank you! To everyone, take this time to think about what your thankful for and tell your loved ones that you love them. Stay safe and Happy Holidays!
