A season of donations and generosity
In just a few weeks, we will once again enjoy a national holiday, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving has deep roots here in the United States that are in English traditions.
The Bible speaks of special days that were set aside in the Old Testament to offer thanks for special blessings that were considered to come from God. The annual Thanksgiving tradition we celebrate here in the United States is documented as far back as 1619. Our familiar traditions date back to the Pilgrims and Puritans from England. Historians tell us that in 1621 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Thanksgiving was triggered by a great harvest.
