Thanksgiving day

Thanksgiving is celebrated in November in every corner of our country. Whereas in the US and in Canada this celebration involves the whole population, in Italy it concerns only the rural world.
In the past people used to thank directly their land, a custom which was linked to social-religious local traditions and sometimes also to legends. Nowadays after great economic and agricultural revolutions, farmers are businessmen and the rural economy is open to the world; as a consequence thanksgiving can’t have only a local involvement.
We always feel the need be thankful but we also have to protect every day the features of our environment and to increase its value.
The Earth is the mother of everyone of us, we all can and must take care of it.
