Why is it important to give thanks?

In the United States, we hold Thanksgiving Day on the third Thursday in November. Many other countries also have days of thanksgiving that are an important part of their lives. Japan celebrates Kinrō Kansha no Hi on November 23rd when people give thanks for the work done throughout the year and the fruit of that labor. Canada celebrates on the second day in October. Learn about other days of thanks here. Most often these celebrations are times of partying and getting together with friends to eat and spend time together in honor of good harvests and nature's bounty. However, the practice of giving thanks serves more than an opportunity to celebrate.
