    As a question in "Religion and Spirituality" I would say that

    thanksgiving is part of the Religious Action Spectrum -- Adoration, Confession, Petition, Intercession

    If you mean the fourth Thursday annual holiday observed in the 50 United States then I would say that "THANKSGIVING" is a secular and family-based holiday -- not typically observed as a "Church" or House of Religion-based holiday

    There are none. Thanksgiving is NOT a religious holiday.

    It's not a religious holiday. It could be for some people but its to give thanks for good fortune and anything else hence the name Thanks giving. It's because just to celebrate with your friends and family and feast.

    In the beginning it was to give thanks that the Pilgrims had landed safely. And to give thanks for the foods and other blessings they had found.

    In this day and age it continues to be a day of thanks for food, clothing, and shelter...but is more for eating a wonderful display of foods. And a time for families to get together. To enjoy life.

    when the puritans had killed some maspee indians they said let us "give thanks" and this is the First recorded writing for "thanks givings".
