Thanksgiving is an opportunity to gather in thanks and giving through different traditions, whether it's making a large meal together, volunteering your time, watching a parade and celebrating traditional American holiday festivities. Some on this day may also choose to investigate the Native American narrative of this day and partake in indigenous foods, give thanks and reflect spiritually on the history of their tribes.
Now, regardless of the origin of the day of Thanksgiving, join in remembrance of a moment of gathering, peace, giving, and gratitude.
