Happy Thanksgiving to our Readers in the USA

ThanksgivingWhen you start a blog like Grass Clippings, you never quite estimate how far and wide your audience will be. 

With over 1,512 lawn related articles (a wonderful milestone we passed this week) and lifetime views of 3,109,494 this humble lawn advice resource is well used by many a lawn owner and turf professional, including many across the pond.

We thank you all wherever you may be, and if you are starting your thanksgiving holiday weekend today, we hope you all have a great time with your family and friends and enjoy the College Football games on today.

Thanksgiving Day traditionally kicks off the 'holiday season' in the United States. The day was set in stone by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 and approved by Congress in 1941. FDR changed it from Abraham Lincoln's designation as the last Thursday in November (because there are sometimes five Thursdays in the month).

While Britons think of it as a warm-up for the Yuletide period, many Americans think it of it as just as important as Christmas.

In fact, more people in the US celebrate Thanksgiving than they do Christmas. Thanksgiving Day is a secular holiday in a country that officially separates church and state so this probably makes sense.
