    Although I live in Australia, my family is from the United States, so we celebrate Thanksgiving as an annual family reunion on the weekend either prior to or just after the US Thanksgiving (because the Thursday isn't a public holiday here). It will be this weekend for us this year. I think it is a lovely tradition to give thanks every year, and it doesn't hurt to have a nice meal and good company too.

    Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
