A Time of Plenty:
Thanksgiving falls in November and many decorate with a cornucopia, or horn of plenty, which symbolizes abundance. The national day of thanksgiving for the US was officially recognized by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862. In Lincoln’s declaration, he urged recognition of the bounty and gifts of our nation. In the midst of civil war, he hoped to see the country heal its wounds and be restored “to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.” (cont.)
