How to Make a Handmade Thanksgiving Card to Express Gratitude
Thanksgiving is the best day of the year, and it is also when I tell you I love you, don't forget the person you want to thank.
Origin of Thanksgiving
The origin of Thanksgiving dates back to the beginning of American history. In 1620, the famous Mayflower arrived in America with 102 puritans who could not bear the persecution of religion in Britain. In the winter at the turn of 1620 and 1621, they encountered unimaginable difficulties, and many people starved to death due to food shortages. Fortunately, they got the help of the local Indians. At this time, the Indians sent the immigrants with the necessities of life, and especially sent people to teach them how to hunt, fish, and grow corn and pumpkins. With the help of the Indians, the immigrants finally got a good harvest. On the day of celebrating the harvest, according to religious traditions, the immigrants set a day to thank God and decided to thank the Indians for their sincere help, so they held a banquet and The Indians celebrated a good life together, and gradually this became a tradition until the United States made the fourth Thursday of November every year as Thanksgiving.
The Tradition of Sending Blessings
Thanksgiving is a holiday for people to send messages of love and warm wishes to their relatives, colleagues, superiors and subordinates, and very close people. On this day, they express their feelings by presenting Thanksgiving cards.

With its delivery, it can remind them and make them feel special to you on that day. Therefore, a simple Thanksgiving card message can express your love and gratitude for them.
