Even before George Washington declared the first nationwide celebration of the holiday, Thanksgiving was a day rich with tradition and history. From its origins as a harvest festival at Plymouth Rock, to the dining room tables creaking under the weight of all those mashed potatoes in America today, Thanksgiving is a time of year to take a moment and be grateful for the people in your life. As a company that relies on, and values, its many employees, Transhield wants to take a moment to reflect on the bountiful traditions Thanksgiving brings, and give thanks for the men and women that work every day to make us industry leaders.
In a time when many Americans feel distant from fellow citizens, Thanksgiving is a timely and wonderful reminder of how close our roots are. Harvest festivals have been celebrations in nearly every major human civilization for thousands of years. So in a way, to celebrate Thanksgiving, or any harvest festival, is to be human.
