Feeling Thankful

November: the month of feeling thankful and spending time with family.

This month hosts the holiday called Thanksgiving. While history says Thanksgiving has a rough past to it, the majority of people celebrate. Family comes to visit as a feast is being made. Some traditions include cooking, breaking the wishbone, football, playing board games and even arts and crafts. Some families have other tradition/traditional foods.

Sophomore Ne’Yomi James said, “We (my mom’s side of the family) always eat seafood. Different cultures might leave out certain foods.”

Diversity can effect a holiday. Different foods, traditions, and more.

Thanksgiving Day in the United States is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November each year. Thanksgiving is also celebrated in other countries. In Canada, it is celebrated on the second Monday of October. Liberia celebrates it on the first Thursday on November. In Grenada, they celebrate it on Oct. 25 of each year.

November also hosts the holiday called Veterans Day. A federal holiday in the United States on November 11, for honoring military veterans.

You can give thanks to the veterans. Celebrate with them, make a home-cooked meal and write a thank you letter or support a veteran-owned business. If you know someone who’s a veteran, you can mail them a card. You could even visit a veterans hospital.
