Happy Thanksgiving Eid

Tomorrow is the American holiday of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving historically was a harvest festival to thank God (and the American Indians) for helping the pilgrims (new arrivals to America) in surviving a harsh environment and cold winter. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general.

Eid Al-Adha follows Thanksgiving this year when pilgrims returning from Mecca are returning home and giving thanks for their blessings and safe journey.

It is an overall good time to be grateful. So, on this occasion, I would like to thank each of you for your small kindnesses, your friendship, and your support.

Happy Thanksgiving and happy Eid to you and your families and God bless you!
