The meaning of Thanksgiving has evolved over the years. You can say with each generation its regenerated into new meaning. Some just see it as a long weekend while others take the opportunity to be thankful for their family.
Personally I’m very thankful for this weekend. I witnessed my bestfriend get married to the man of her dreams. Their families are now joined together to create an even bigger family. Her path in life has been revived into something she never imagined as a teenager.
Thanksgiving is also an opportunity to eat turkey for many. In my house turkey is cooked twice a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Its always a time to be with family and enjoy each other’s company. With hardly a recipe used in our house, each meal is a reincarnation of the last with improvements. It takes three generations to make thanksgiving happen in my families home.
Being thankful is something that’s year round. But with busy lives its wonderful to have occasions that brings families together and just enjoy each other’s company. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I have a background in creative english. This year is my first year volunteering for TedxKids@BC, hope there will be many more to come.
