Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. We in the United States have much to be thankful for: our beautiful country with its abundant resources, its strong economy, and its political system which gives us a voice in the decisions which affect us and protects our basic freedoms. Yes, we have many problems as well, and the solutions are not easy to find. Still, I am thankful for what I have (my family, my home, and my job) and feel lucky to have been born in the United States.

Most Americans (including the most recent Americans, immigrants) celebrate Thanksgiving by getting together with their families and eating too much! Many families also enjoy watching or playing football on this day. To learn more about this holiday, see the link to Wilstar's Thanksgiving page in the sidebar.

Enjoy your holiday (if you have one), and remember to appreciate all the good things in your life.

  • Hello, Nina!
    I enjoyed reading your post about Thanksgiving day. It's really nice for the US people to have a holiday like that, because it makes you think about the things that we sometimes take for granted. Also, people are likely to gain some weight after the holiday!

    Well, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day, but your post helped me imagine what it's like!
