Thanksgiving is one of the ancient festivals celebrated throughout history. From history we can learn that the ancient tribes used to make offerings and prepare feasts to thank their gods and seek their blessing. In ancient times, the Jews, the Romans, the Greeks, too had similar festivals to serve their gods and goddesses of harvest.  

Although the festival of thanksgiving is celebrated on different dates in Canada and the United states but the way of celebration is more or less similar in both the countries. In the United Kingdom, Harvest festival is celebrated in the month of September or October and special services of Thanksgiving are arranged at local churches to honor the day.  

Jewish people observe the festival of thanksgiving as Sukkot, which continues for almost nine days. The Chinese people celebrate “The Festival of the Autumn Moon”, or “Zhong Qui” , a festival of thanksgiving held on the eight month of the Chinese calendar. In India the harvest festival is known as “Onam” in Kerala. Thanksgiving is a time for family get-togethers, football, turkey and pumpkin pie. But, moreover, it is a time to be reminded of how God has richly blessed us.
