today is thanksgiving and i am oh-so-excited! today, is one of my favorite holidays. not only because of the food that we get to eat, but because of the meaning. my family and i will be feasting at my cousins home here, in southern utah. i hope there will be lots of good food. especially pumpkin pie! mmmm, my favorite. :) what's your favorite thing to eat at thanksgiving?
i was thinking... what does thanksgiving really mean? it doesn't mean to just eat and stuff your faces all day. i know it is a day of thanks, but i wanted to see what the real definition was. so i went to good ol' dictionary.com and typed in thanksgiving. here is the definition that came up:
- the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, esp. to god.
- and expression of thanks
ok... so basically that means to be grateful and give thanks. that's pretty simple, right? well, if it's that simple... why isn't it thanksgiving everyday?
this upcoming video is a video that was made by my church. it isn't just made for the members of our church. it applies to anyone who celebrates thanksgiving. if you are interested, please watch. it has a great meaning. :)
i'm not meaning to be religious here, i'm just stating my opinion and beliefs on this holiday. :) thanks for reading and i hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving!♥
