We all the history of Thanksgiving. The pilgrims, after a harsh winter and help from Native Americans, were able to collect their first harvest and gave thanks to God for it. Then, they ate with the Native Americans the first Thanksgiving meal. That harsh winter with disease and death and without food made them appreciate what they had after the harvest. They were thankful that they made it through the winter and into a better time.
However, the meaning and history can be lost in the midst of preparing for Thanksgiving Day, watching football, Black Friday shopping deals, family get-togethers, and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Sure, we’re thankful for various things like family, friends, Thanksgiving break, God, and more. More often than not, we take for granted the history. Sometime it’s gotten to the point where Thanksgiving is just another holiday.
