Touching Hearts With Cute Thanksgiving Quotes


Thanksgiving Day dates back to the 17th century, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth, along with some Indian natives held a three-day celebration and a grand feast. The Pilgrims had suffered a lot; many died due to the severe cold and starvation. The next year, the Pilgrims reaped a rich harvest, and they decided to share their bounty with the friendly Indians. The community feast included many kinds of food -- corn, turkey, venison, fish, pumpkin, peas, onions, plums and nuts.

Most of the food served on the first Thanksgiving has now become the staple for Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey took center-stage as the chosen fowl, and pumpkin pie earned its share of limelight. In this way, Thanksgiving feast became a symbol of American culture.

    In thankfulness of heart.

  • Ray Stannard Baker
    Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life... a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year - and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God.

  • George Bernard Shaw

  • Sir John Templeton
    How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative, or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness; they draw people.
