What Is Thanksgiving, When Is It Celebrated, and What Is the Relevance of Celebrating It?

Thanksgiving is a national holiday that is observed in the United States and in Canada. This occasion traces back to the country’s historical roots in both religion and culture, and it has even been celebrated as a secular holiday for these two countries. There is no definite date for the celebration. The month in which the occasion is celebrated is even varied between the two countries that celebrate it. In the United States, it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, while in Canada, it is celebrated on the second Monday of October.

Thanksgiving is being celebrated since it commemorates the country’s act of expressing gratitude from the successful harvests, and that feasts were held at the culmination of the harvest season. During these feasts, people have often showed their generosity and shared their gathered food with the indigenous people around the area. Come to think of it, the act of celebrating Thanksgiving by today’s people very much mirrors the feast that the ancestors held for their good harvest.

What Is the History of Thanksgiving?

The celebration of Thanksgiving actually dates back to the early 1600s during the autumn season when the colonists in Plymouth shared a harvest feast with the native Indians from Wampanoag. The feast was organized by the governor of the Plymouth Colony, who also happened to be the founder of the said colony, William Bradford, after the Pilgrims’—a term used to refer to the people in Plymouth—first successful corn harvest. During this time, the colony called on a group of Native American allies to join them in their celebratory feast. And this historical event has been remembered by the Americans as the very first Thanksgiving celebration.

What Is the Importance of Using Invitations?

  • Invitations serve as the formal document for notifying people that they are being expected to a particular event.
  • Aside from just letting the invited person/s that they are being expected, an invitation also provides them with the necessary information regarding the What, When, and Where of the event.
  • For intimate events, the invitation can also serve as an instrument that an invitee must show to the ushers of the event before they are allowed to enter the premises.

What Are Some Tips When Making an Invitation?

  • Before even starting to make an invitation, always know who you want to invite and list them down on a sheet of paper so you can also determine how many copies of the invitation you want to print.
  • While you can always write the details down in narrative or letter format, this method may take time. What’s important with invitations are the details that answer the What, When, and Where. Therefore, provide the invitees with information as to What type of event they are being invited to, When the event will take place, and Where it will be held.
  • Encourage the invitees to arrive at the venue earlier than the indicated time on the invitation.
  • Include an RSVP on the invitation and specify a deadline for the response, which is usually two weeks before the date of the event. Then again, send your invitation at least four to eight weeks prior in advance. This way, it not only gives you enough time to prepare for the number of attendees to your event, but it also provides your invitee enough time to do a rain check whether or not they have a scheduled appointment on the date of the event.
