Thanksgiving Day Liberia 2019

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Liberia is the only African state that has been founded by the Africa-American immigrants.

They have brought American traditions to the country, that are still observed on the national level.

Liberians celebrate Thanksgiving Day, but its date falls on the first Thursday in November.

Celebration of Thanksgiving Day in Liberia began in the early 1880s, when the government of Liberia passed an act declaring this holiday on the first Thursday in November.

Thanksgiving Day is a day of celebration of the harvest, but Liberian holiday has slightly changed and assumed other features.

Liberians use Thanksgiving Day as an occasion to go to their sacred places of worship, primarily Christian churches.

They bring fresh fruits of the harvest to the church and after the end of the service auction them.
