Thursday is Thanksgiving Day


President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has by Proclamation declared Thursday, November 3, as National Thanksgiving Day. It is to be observed throughout the Republic as a National Holiday.

The Proclamation calls on all Liberians and foreign residents, priests, imams, bishops, pastors, clergies and all religious organizations in Liberia to gather together in their various places of worship to give thanks and praises to the Almighty God that His blessings and mercies may continuously rest upon the nation and its people.

A Foreign Affairs Ministry release quotes the Proclamation as saying that Liberians have always given thanks and praises to the Almighty God for His tender mercies and manifold blessings bestowed upon them and the nation, especially for His continuous protection in times of peace, disaster, and other natural phenomena over the years.

The Proclamation is in consonance with an Act of the National Legislature which enacted a statute in 1883 declaring the first Thursday in the month of November of each year as National Thanksgiving Day.

According to the Proclamation, “it is befitting that a day be set aside for the nation and its people to give thanks and adoration to the Lord for His dispensation of grace, mercy and providence for the preservation of lives.”
