Imagine the world without the words “thank you.” Thank you is a phrase that needs to be utilized in our daily routines to demonstrate gratitude in a manner of courtesy.
Thanksgiving Day is not a day of fun or just another holiday, but a time to remind everyone to reciprocate “thank you.”
Thanksgiving Day is a custom observed annually by Canadians. The Canadian Thanksgiving Day can be traced to French settlers who came to “New France” with explorer Samuel de Champlain in the early 17th century. The historical holiday is associated with celebrating their successful harvests.
It is a special day of appreciation. It is entirely in our hands how to turn the occasion into a sweet and successful day.
Before celebrating we should offer great thanks to the Almighty who bestowed good health, happiness and bountiful mercy upon us.
At home, everyone should be acknowledged with sincere thanks because they are contributing endless efforts in order to make family life easy, smooth and good.
We must not forget our neighbours to convey thanks and remind them they are nice and valuable neighbours. Their good conduct gives us a sense of pride to live beside them.
At the workplace, everyone should be greeted with a gesture of gratitude and wholehearted thanks.
Give the gift of thank you to whoever helps you, whether they are friends, relatives or acquaintances.
On saying grace, you win other’s hearts and that makes life more pleasurable.
Say thank you and have a happy Thanksgiving Day.
