Thanksgiving day has a new name: “Thank You Day”

This year I’m going to call Thanksgiving to be “Thank You Day.” The term thanksgiving often loses its meaning, because we don’t think about word actually is: Thanks giving.

We are to give thanks. One method is to thank other people by simply saying, “thank you.”

I realized this in a response I was writing to friend who wished me a happy thanksgiving in an email and I responded with the following:

Thanks for the thanksgiving wishes. Oh look! The thanking is already started. Thank you for starting the thank yous for the thank you day! I hope you have a happy thank you day as well.

Thank you for reading this post. And thank you to Lyle for inspiring this blog post.
