Celebrating Christmas

Thanksgiving Day

Ellen White wrote comparatively little on Thanksgiving Day—two articles appeared in the Review and Herald, one in the Pacific Union Recorder, and a few manuscripts—but what she wrote is clear and instructive about how the day should be observed. Thanksgiving was to be a day of gratitude to God and making a helpful difference to others. She was concerned that Thanksgiving Day be not a day of self-centered gluttony. On the Thanksgiving Day page, you will find some of the key paragraphs and one of the articles.


New Year's Day
