Brian’s Blog: Three Distinct Days in November

November is unique in that three very distinctly American holidays take place during the month, three days that are intertwined and help define us as Americans.

 

Everyone thinks of Thanksgiving Day as the marquee November holiday, but Election Day and Veterans Day also take place this month. If you really think about it, they are all connected.

Election Day. Citizens exercising their right to put people in office to govern our cities, counties, states and country. No coups, no violence, no troops in the street. Voting to put laws in place or remove an unjust measure. Democracy in action.

Veteran’s Day. An opportunity to honor those that have served, fought, and in many cases died, to preserve and defend our American way, including the right to vote.

Thanksgiving Day. Historically going back to the original English settlers in Massachusetts giving thanks to God for their survival of their first year in the New World. It was made a national holiday in a proclamation by President Lincoln in 1863. Today, it’s traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. The meal often includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables. Thanksgiving Day is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have. A day for all of us to be thankful we live in the most unique country on Earth.

See, all three days really are connected.

Here’s a website with more information on Thanksgiving Day.
