Of all the holidays acknowledged and celebrated in the United States of America, Thanksgiving is the one which, perhaps, can most easily be embraced by all who live here – wherever their origins, whatever their beliefs.
Most countries or cultures have a harvest festival in their yearly cycle. While turkey is still the centerpiece of many, but certainly not all, Thanksgiving tables, the offerings of immigrants have created any number of “traditional Thanksgiving” variations. Just as a resident of California will consider certain items crucial to the meal different from those of a Southerner, the contributions of ItalianAmericans, IndianAmericans, PolishAmericans, ChineseAmericans, MexicanAmericans, and all others enrich the diversity of this holiday just as their cultures enrich the diversity of this country.
In short; , as the year comes to an end, we’ve all likely had losses and gains. Use this time of Thanksgiving and the rapidly approaching year’s end as an opportunity for both introspection and retrospection. However blessed or trying the past year has been; however bare or bountiful our tables; however many chairs sit empty that were occupied; or however many new chairs have been drawn close – each household has something for which to be thankful. For just one day we are joined in that, at least, and the differences in our tastes, our prayers, and our features are celebrated.
At this precious time of giving thanks and on behalf of MVP Law Group, we wish you and your families far and near, health, happiness and success. It goes without saying that we are thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of your family’s future and thank you for your continued support.
Happy Thanksgiving, from our family to yours.
The MVP Law Group
