How do people give thanks on Thanksgiving?
I'm Canadian, but both US and Canada celebrate Thanksgiving. It started with the original puritans or pioneers giving thanks for the harvest of the year and all blessings they have received from God, by having a day filled with a bountiful harvest on the dinner table. The is mainly of Christian heritage, but the act of thanksgiving is not just for that day only, but started with native Americans and the putitans and pioneers. It a reminder that we should always be thankful for Gods many blessings. Being thankful is a good mindset to have.

No organized celebration of thanksgiving in the United States is recorded before the pilgrims gathered together to give thanks on what we now consider the first Thanksgiving. Though giving thanks is an option anyone can choose on a daily basis, it was the pilgrims gathering together to give thanks that started Thanksgiving in the U.S.
