( [email protected] ) Nov 26, 2015 02:54 AM EST
Thanksgiving celebrations nowadays are mainly made up of friends and family members feasting on good food while lounging around bars or houses watching football games. Every fourth Thursday of November, Americans gather in groups to celebrate an occasion that started in 1621. While the manner by which Thanksgiving is observed these days greatly differ from the harvest meal that marked the beginning of such glorious occasion, the idea behind the event remains the same. That is, Thanksgiving still marks the day that Americans stay together in one place to share a meal with one another.
''O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.'' (Psalm 95:1-3 KJV).
