Thanksgiving Celebration for Non-Christians

Non-Christian immigrants to the United States and Canada often find themselves facing this question, Is it OK to celebrate Thanksgiving?

No matter what is your religion (Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Atheism, or any other belief) It’s OK to celebrate Thanksgiving. This is because Thanksgiving does not belong to Christianity, it’s a secular celebration of the harvest and a way of family gathering and thanking God for all the good deeds we have. Perhaps it’s the only big holiday for believers and non-believers.

The Thanksgiving holiday is not observed in all the Christian majority countries. It’s mainly in the US, and Canada. Which is a proof that it’s not meant for Christians alone.
