A Time to Give Thanks

Thanksgiving and comparable holidays are celebrated in many places, including the United States, Canada, Liberia, and some of the Caribbean islands, with similarly named festivals occurring in several other countries around the world.  In the U.S., the holiday is celebrated the fourth Thursday of November, while our colleagues in Canada celebrate it the second Monday of October.

Specific traditions might come to mind when you think about Thanksgiving. Perhaps you partake in a Thanksgiving Day feast with turkey, cranberry sauce, potatoes and pumpkin pie. Or you might decide to attend a local parade in your city or town. Maybe you typically watch a football game or play some of your favorite board games. But all of these activities have one thing in common: you’re likely sharing these moments with the people you care about.

And regardless of whether you choose to partake in the holiday, it can serve as a reminder to take a moment to think about what you’re grateful for. It can also serve as an opportunity to give thanks to those who are important to you – from your family and friends, your clients, your colleagues and others who have positively influenced your life.

Happy Thanksgiving on behalf of RSM’s Multicultural employee network group and the rest of our 11,000 employees nationwide!
