A global affair
Thanksgiving is also celebrated in different countries throughout the year. Although the traditions may be different, gratitude is truly at the heart of the occasion.
Although Thanksgiving is a 400-year-old celebration, it’s funny to think that just 10 years before the first Thanksgiving, the first copy of the St. James’ Bible was published — a version of the Bible that is said to be the most printed book in the history of the world. And if you look through the centuries’ old version, and the previous versions, you’ll see that the Bible is the ultimate instruction manual in how, and why, we should be thankful.
