Thanksgiving has been around since the early 1600s to celebrate a plentiful harvest. In America, this holiday falls on every fourth Thursday in November. It’s typically celebrated by a gathering with friends and family where guests eat a lot of turkey and pies and watch football.
Americans participate in traditions such as making wishes while breaking the wishbone and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Thanksgiving is also a holiday where people give thanks for everything they have.
Whether this includes family, a comfortable home, plentiful food, a good job, or just a pet loved more than life itself, Thanksgiving is the day to express the gratitude of the important things in life.
This Thanksgiving let the journalism department know what you are thankful for. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, post on the Facebook page or send a tweet to @UWOshjournalism telling us in 140 characters or less what you are thankful for. Take another step and send in a photo of what you are thankful for, just make sure to add a caption.
Tweets with the #UWOthanksgiving will be posted in the Journalism Reading Room to show the department what students, faculty and staff are thankful for.
Messages will be posted as they come in right up until Thanksgiving.
