We often hear about the festival of Thanksgiving, the speeches, the feasts and all the celebratory excitement that fills the air.

 

But what is Thanksgiving? To understand more about this festival, we first have to trace back to the year 1621. A group of people called the Pilgrims left their homes in England and travelled across the seas through very harsh conditions before they landed in the United States of America, a place where we call Massachusetts today. The wintry weather was bitterly cold and many Pilgrims suffered intense hunger.

 

Fortunately, the Native Americans taught them how to fish and farm, and the Pilgrims were finally able to have proper meals. After a successful harvest in November, the Pilgrims celebrated lavishly by having a feast with the Native Americans. The idea of being grateful and giving thanks for all the kind people we meet, and the opportunities we have and the accomplishments we make is central to the tradition of Thanksgiving.

 

Thanksgiving is not solely celebrated in the West, but also in Singapore. The feast is ultimately the most important aspect of this festival, and very symbolic to its meaning. Traditional Thanksgiving food like turkey, ham, casseroles, cornbread and pies are usually served at the table among family and friends. Some may even decide to go for a delicious buffet at the restaurant for a wider variety of specialized food. Whichever way they celebrate, the main idea is to give thanks and enjoy the wonderful occasion with loved ones.

 

To show how much you appreciate you friends and family, the little gestures do best. Help out at the kitchen, share some fun and laughs, or best of all, bring some beautiful flowers to the table to set the festive mood. We have three special gift flowers, perfect for the occasion.
