Since I live in Asia and not a follower of related religions, I have always been curious that this festival means to those who celebrate it. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? What does it mean to you?

I regard it to be a just time to say thanks to those we ever didn't have chance to say .And everyone should be thankful for those who helped us .

Sweetie, Thanksgiving isn't about religion. It's a special day, set aside, to celebrate the blessings we have recieved throughout the year. It's a time for family and friends, for sharing our lives, and our blessings. Many people will offer up some of the things they are thankful for by going one by one around the table. It is a time of remembering the history of our nation. Yes, I count my blessings everyday and offer my gratitude. It's about tradition and so much more.

I dunno what thanksgiving is all about.. BUt in recent years, in singapore, we are celebrating it, in a small scale too, especially in companies or some government sectors.. haha =D Just like yesterday or the day before, it was being reported in the news, whereby a food court auntie, was presented with a stalk of sunflower by customers, because of her helpfulness and eagerness etc.. haha =D So, i guess it's just a festive to thank anybody or everybody whom has helped us in our lifes ^_^
