Thanksgiving Day Celebrations


Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is an annual one-day to give thanks at the conclusion of the harvest season. The Americans celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November, and Canada celebrates the holiday on the second Monday in October.

Traditional celebration
In Canada, Thanksgiving is a three-day weekend
(although some provinces observe a four day weekend, Friday–Monday). Traditional Thanksgiving meals prominently feature turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes, though Canada's multicultural heritage has seen many families infuse this traditional meal with elements of their traditional ethnic foods.

Not too many Filipinos celebrate national Thanksgiving Day in the Philippines. Although I've known a lot of Filipinos living here in Toronto who have been celebrating Thanksgiving day like Canadians. Thanksgiving Day in the Philippines is celebrated on September 21, although this day conflicts with July 4th, the country's former Independence day and now the American-Filipino Friendship Day. When Prof. Gabriel Fabella succeeded in changing the day of celebrating Philippines Independence from July 4 to June 12, he also proposed that July 4 to become Thanksgiving Day in the Philippines but then it was a failure. President Marcos declared to make Thanksgiving day a "national thanksgiving day" on September 21, 1974. However, Filipinos show thanksgiving through the different festivals held in different parts of the country throughout the year, all in peculiar way.

Since its Thanksgiving day, I want to thank Talksmart for giving my blog the opportunity to be featured on his poll. My Traffic rate increases since last week when this blog was nominated in his poll. And for all those who voted and will vote for my blog," maraming salamat". More power and Happy Thanksgiving Day from Toronto, Canada.

Many Thanksgiving Day blessings to our Canadian neighbors (from the USA).

I see most of your photos have a box around them and wondered if that was intentional or if you've just accepted that's the way they appear on this blog. If you might, try adding this border=0 inside at the end of your image code. It might help. I hope so anyway. See portion example below

align="left" border=0 />

tey, it looks great. I like how you have the images positioned so that they look right out of a magazine layout. Very professional.

Hope your day is blessed.
