Thanksgiving is not only a festival but a tradition which should be passed from generation to generation.
Historically, Thanksgiving is a harvest festival.
We should introduce Toddlers and Kids to this festival which is about giving thanks to the ones who are involved in putting our food to the plate.
Farmers who grow the crops.
The person who brings the food Home.

Back in 1621, this Harvest festival was observed by the Pilgrims at Plymouth, where the settlers held a harvest feast after a successful growing season.

Make it a Family time.
Rather than watching TV or going out to the market, invite your loved ones over your place. Celebrate the togetherness.
Have a meal together where you all fold your hands to pray and thank Almighty for the lovely food.
Rather than you inviting your closed ones to your place, ask your Kids to make the calls or write invitations.

Let the Kids know that we have enough and God has given us a chance to serve others.
Involve the Kids in charity. Ask them to choose the things they wish to donate.
