The annual Thanksgiving Day is coming. How will you spend Thanksgiving this year? Is it to reunite with your family to eat, or to spend time with friends? Changes in the times have made our choices more diverse. And in this article, I will talk about the logo, history and new thinking of Thanksgiving Day and hope this article will give you some inspirations about a different Thanksgiving Day.
Whenever we are at the festival, we have to use the logo to decorate the house and food, as well as Thanksgiving. What kind of logo is suitable for Thanksgiving? Look at the two logos above, I will take them as examples to illustrate.
①Thanksgiving Day is a day for family to reunite, so the color tone of the logo must be warm, so as to reflect the warm atmosphere of family reunion.
②Thanksgiving is the harvest season in late autumn and early winter. Red leaves and pumpkins are essential factors of Thanksgiving Day. We can apply them to the logo to show our joy and gratitude for the harvest. At the same time, pumpkin is also a tool for traditional food and traditional games of Thanksgiving.
③At last, what is Thanksgiving for? Thank you for the harvest, thank you for the health of the family, thank you for the reunion of friends. We should incorporate our gratitude into the logo and show it in the logo, so as to arouse people’s resonance and make people feel warm.
①The origin of Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in North America, thanks to God for giving an annual harvest of blessings. In 1620, the Mayflower was loaded with the Puritans to the Americas. In the winter, many people were hungry and cold, and they died of illness. With the help of the Indians, new immigrants learned to hunt, grow corn, and pumpkins, and welcomed a bumper harvest in the coming year. On the day of the harvest, the new European immigrants invited the Indians to come together to thank God for their blessings.
In the United States, since 1941, Thanksgiving Day is scheduled for the fourth Thursday of November each year, and a day off from that day, which is generally considered to mark the official start of the Christmas shopping season.
②The custom of Thanksgiving Day
On the day of Thanksgiving, the whole country is very busy. Christians go to church to pray for prayers according to custom. There are costume parades, drama performances or sports competitions everywhere in urban and rural areas. The relatives of each year will also go home and taste the turkey-based Thanksgiving food. Also because of the continuous vacation, the North American box office data of the released movie will be higher during this period.
The turkey is the traditional main course of Thanksgiving. Usually, the turkey belly is stuffed with various seasonings and mixed foods, which are then baked and cut into thin slices by the male owner and distributed by the hostess. The usual side dishes are gravy, sweet potato, cranberry jam, sweet corn, and various vegetables. In addition, pumpkin pie is often used as a complementary food.
③The activity of Thanksgiving Day
After the Thanksgiving banquet, people sometimes do traditional games. For example, the pumpkin race is for the contestant to push the pumpkin with a small spoon. The rule is that you can’t touch the pumpkin by hand, and the first to reach the finish line wins. The smaller the spoon used in the game, the more interesting the game is. People will also take out the wishbone of the turkey’s chest, and each of them will hold one end and meditate on the desire of the heart until it breaks, and the desire of the person who gets the longer end of the bone will be realized.
As children, we learned about the first meal shared at Plymouth Colony where Pilgrims invited Wampanoag Indians to join hands and hearts and gave thanks for the “autumn harvest.” That was in 1621, a three-day festival, per history books. The holiday continues now, but what are you truly thankful for, at this very moment? Food, football, friends, and fun?
