Thanksgiving Day IV 2012


Thanksgiving Day is not a national holiday in Honduras and only within the past two or three years has it even been recognized by the local populace via the usual commercial media promotions, no doubt due to the large number of Honduran immigrants living in the US. Known as Día de Acción de Gracias the newspapers, TV and radio are beginning to make it a major event, along with Christmas Day which has been a major money draw for several years. Since everyone works on Thursday, we celebrated our special day of thanks this past Saturday. About 50 friends, family and compañeros gathered with us at the Hogar San José for our Fourth Annual Thanksgiving Day to give thanks for our many blessings. Our new building´s initial planning work is back on schedule, the children are healthy and happy, we continue to advance forward, slowly but surely. There is much to be thankful for this season. This is my favorite time of the year in Honduras. The rainy days are over and it will be sunny, cool and balmy until next February. In January I will be traveling to the States. Life is good.
