Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
Today we are celebrating the great holiday – Thanksgiving Day! The ancient roots of this holiday go deep into the history, but we are celebrating this Day with the same love and joy as our ancestors did. Thanksgiving began as a tradition of celebrating the harvest of the year and still it is quite popular holiday in USA, Canada and other countries. Thanksgiving has the special warm atmosphere when the whole family is gathering around the table having traditional dinner with roasted turkey, pumpkin pie and other tasty stuff. To fill you with this great Thanksgiving spirit, we would like to quote really wonderful poem by Old Rhyme:
The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway —
Thanksgiving comes again!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
