Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. In Canada, Thanksgiving falls on the same day as Columbus Day in the United States. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend that falls closest to the day it is celebrated.

I would like to thank many people and things. First of all, I especially want to thank my parents, they gave me life and they are my abecedarian. They were there with me for most of my first experiences. They taught me how to take the first step, they taught me how to speak my first word and they taught me how to ride a bike.
I remembered one thing happened when I was eight years old. In a cold winter night, I suddenly got a high fever, mum and Dad found out when they went home from work. Without saying a word, Dad put on his coat and helped me get dressed. My mum quickly picked up an umbrella when my dad carried me. My parents walked quickly towards the hospital, I could feel their worries. The distance seemed very long from my home to the hospital, it got even more difficult to walk in the rain. I told my parents that I could walk myself, but my father did not put me down, instead, he walked even faster. It didn’t take me too long to recover. However, this experience became one of the most unforgettable memories in my life. I felt my parents love from that and they will be people who I would like to thank in my entire life.
