On the 28th of November, every year is always a day to anticipate all around America as it is a day set aside to appreciate the people around us, our loved ones, especially family members, colleagues, and neighbors. It’s a day of having plenty on the table and to eat. Growing up, Thanksgiving was always a day I personally looked forward to because I get amazing gifts from my family members, see my nephews and nieces. It was a day for me when I get all my requests granted by my mom. Like literally anything I want she gets me just because it’s thanksgiving.
Now that I have grown up and had a family of my own, what excites me the most about this day is the fact that I get to lend a helping hand to the less privileged, and those who can’t help themselves or have their families around them. It’s a day I get anything I want. The excitement is just endless and I’m pretty sure it is the same with you over there right? YES!!!
But just in case it may not be, today’s article, I will be talking about the most exciting activities to actively engage in to make your Thanksgiving Day a memorable one this 2019. Oh, I forgot to tell you, it is also a day we get to appreciate what God has done in our lives, jobs, businesses! Now let’s dive in.
