In 1941, Congress passed legislation declaring Thanksgiving Day a national holiday to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November every year.

For this year 2018, November 22 is the American Thanksgiving holiday.

Thanksgiving is not a tradition that we celebrate in our country. Though I think it is a good idea to have a day to reflect on the things and the people one is grateful for. Being appreciative is the positive emotion that I wish we'd feel everyday.

Christian churches here in the Philippines also celebrate thanksgiving as patterned from the America's celebration every month of November. I believe that this is a good thing to do. To thank God for everything He has done to us.

Yes I agree. I do believe christian churches have their own version of thanksgiving. But still there isn't a national holiday in the Philippines that is similar to the Thanksgiving tradition being celebrated every November in other countries.

There is no holiday yet on thanksgiving here in the Philippines. Anyway we can thank Him everyday of our lives. Its just a matter of attitude.
