HUSS Incense Thanksgiving

Vancouver, B.C., October 07, 2018   

When was the first Thanksgiving in North America?
The first known thanksgiving treaty in North America was probably made by Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and the Caddo tribe on May 23, 1541, in what is today Texas. The discovery of food was celebrated by the expedition of the Spaniards.

Thanksgiving in Japan
Even in Japan, there was an ancient Imperial Thanksgiving (niinamesai "Cost of New Rice"), a Shinto ritual in which the emperor sacrifices freshly harvested rice to the gods. In the first year after the emperor's accession to the throne, the festival is celebrated as daijôsai ("great expense"). The first mention of this ritual, the origin of which is suspected earlier, can be found in the Nihonshoki from the year 720, where a ceremony from the year 678 is reported. Thanksgiving Day has become a public holiday celebrated on the 23rd of November, which is the day of thanks for the work.

Tamil Thanksgiving: Pongal
Pongal (Tamil: Poṅkal [poŋɡəl], literally: "boil over"), also known as Tai Pongal or Thai Pongal, is a Tamil harvest thanksgiving. It is celebrated at the beginning of the Tamil month of Tai (mid-January) and is one of the most important Tamil holidays. Pongal also refers to the rice dish, which is cooked during the festival but can also be eaten on other occasions. The festivities last four days in total.

Germans "Erntedank" 
The Roman Catholic German Bishops' Conference set the first Sunday in October as a fixed date in 1972, without making this stipulation binding on all communities. An official part of the church year is the Thanksgiving but not until today, the communities are not required to celebrate the festival. "The salvation-oriented year of the church knows no harvest thanksgiving." Nevertheless, the custom of thanksgiving for a good harvest has long been common in many Roman Catholic communities, so that - in addition to herb consecration on 15 August, Quatember and the firstfruits - in the Roman Catholic Church, the Eucharist on the first Sunday in October many times "Thanks for the Fruit of the Earth and Human Labor" on the altar surrounded by "Erntedank" Gifts.

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones!
