Today is Labor Thanksgiving day

Today is Japanese holiday it is called  Kinro-Kansha-no-Hi  is celebrated on November 23rd. It means Labor Thanksgiving day – it is combined Labor day and thanks giving day.

November 23 was used to be niiname sai , rice harvest festival, and a holiday. Even now, the Emperor dedicates the year’s harvest to the god and taste the year’s rice for the first time.

In the USA the fourth Thursday of November is Thanksgiving, and people have a turkey dinner. But we do not do anything special on this day, just thank to have another holiday.
