Counting our Blessings...

Thanksgiving is the time of year many contemplate the blessings in life and a time to give thanks for what you have.

The holiday, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, originated as a harvest festival.

Thanksgiving symbolically marks the Pilgrims’ first harvest in the New World in October 1621, a feast that lasted three days and was attended by Pilgrims and Native Americans, following the colonists’ tradition of giving thanks to God for blessings such as a successful harvest or the end of a drought.
