    You know what the only awkward part of Thanksgiving is for me? Who's gonna say the Thanksgiving prayer.

    [​IMG]

    None of my family are really saved, and last time they chose me (again). Usually I tone things down, you know, so as not to make anybody feel uncomfortable, but last time I really laid one out there. Total Holy Ghost prayer on steroids.

    Probably the last time they'll be asking me to do the Thanksgiving prayer, Lol.

    "Lord, send your Holy Ghost FIRE upon this turkey, and anoint it MIGHTILY that we may be blessed by Thine Bountiful Sustenance, YEA VERILY!!"

    Ok, it wasn't that bad, LoL. Just a lot of talk about ministries and callings, and the power of God upon everyone's life. :rolleyes:

    The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days and was attended by 90 Wampanoag Native American people and 53 Pilgrims (survivors of the Mayflower).
    It didn't become a national holiday until
    President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.

    Keep on pointing the peoples to Christ . For in the end only the lambs shall be forever with the King .
    You just point to the glorious LORD . Yes indeed . If we really sat down and pondered on the truth
    we would realize if we truly love them we would point them to Christ . In the end
    the only life that matters was eternal life . And that is in and found only IN JESUS CHRIST .
    Two things are very real . May we ponder on them both this thanksgiving day
    ETERNAL LIFE in JESUS is real and so is eternal damnation . WHERE DO WE WANT folks to end up .
    SO yes indeed my friend . YOU point them to JESUS .
    Imagine a house on fire , would we not do all to pull folks out of said house and warn them not to go in said house .
    How much more then ought we to tell folks truth . For in the end there are but two places . WITH JESUS , or eternal damnation .

    In Canada we do thanksgiving, I don't think it is as big as the U.S. tho. We do get one day off from work; and we did get together with family before covid put an end to that. So now just with my wife, and children, and my sons fiance; we get together eat turkey, and the works: pototos, stuffing, corn. Then as the head of the home, I speak a blessing over everyone, and then play a game, or watch a movie together.

    Hi Angelina, We have been celebrating Thanksgiving ever since we were born in New Orleans, La. traditionally speaking with our families. But the Fall Harvest is usually in September-October.

    I must add, The origin: The Autumn has always been a cause for celebration. The ancient Greeks honored Demeter, their corn goddess, at the annual festival known as the Thesmophoria in October when the seeds for the next year's crop were about to be planted....

    Even in America, there were at least two Thanksgiving celebrations before the one that took place at Plymouth in 1621. In 1607 a group of English settlers led by Captain George Popham met with a group of Abnaki Indians near the mouth of the Kennebec River to share a harvest feast and prayer meeting.

    On December 14, 1619, there was a celebration in Virginia led by Captain John Woodleaf and 39 colonists who had traveled up the James River from Jamestown to a place called Berkeley Hundred, where they went ashore and gave thanks.

    LOL, Walter and Debbie
