They also do the same thing that we spend Christmas for, they spend time with family and celebrating the Birth of Jesus. Like a lot of people say that is really what Christmas is all about. Christmas all around the world could be completely different but they also have their similarities.
Each person writes what they are thankful for on the leaf and she sticks it to a paper tree on the wall. Doing this gets everyone into a happy mood because we think about everything we have been blessed with. In 1621, the first thanksgiving held was a day dedicated to giving thanks to God for the colony's successful harvest. Unlike many other holidays such as Christmas whose original meaning society seems to have forgotten about, Thanksgiving in America is still about sharing and giving thanks.
