Similar to the American Thanksgiving concept, Thanksgiving Day is a day to share your appreciation for those around you.
Ex-footballer Gary Lineker is urging people across the UK to throw thanksgiving parties in honor of the platinum anniversary.
What is thank you day?
The concept of thank you day became popular in 2021 to thank the unsung heroes of the pandemic.
The idea is that you raise a toast and celebrate whoever or whatever is there to say thank you for this year.
In 2022, Thanksgiving Day will celebrate the Queen, 96, and her achievements.
The day is supported by a host of celebrities including ex-footballer Gary Lineker, Bake Off judge Prue Leith, actor Ross Kemp and TV favorite Lorraine Kelly.
Celebrating 70 years on the throne, Her Majesty is the longest-reigning female monarch in history.
She is also the longest-reigning British monarch of all time, overtaking Queen Victoria, who served 63 years.
When is thank you day?
The previous thank you day for Covid heroes was July 4, 2021.
This year it was rescheduled to coincide with the culmination of the Platinum Jubilee.
Thanksgiving Day is this year on Sunday, May 5th.
Writing exclusively for The Sun, Lineker said: “She was such a feature of the life of our country that she now captures so much of our national spirit at its best.
“Our resilience, our commitment to looking out for one another, our kindness to those in need, and our service.”
Throughout the weekend, people gather to honor the Queen’s service to the country.
Thanksgiving Day on Sunday focuses on those accomplishments by encouraging people to get involved with their community.
How is Thanksgiving Day celebrated?
This year, Thanksgiving Day will be celebrated with street parties across the country.
Thanksgiving day is meant to bring communities together.
Apply to your community for a street party or simply invite your neighbors to a party in your backyard.
The idea is to just spend time and get to know the people in your community who are all driven by the anniversary celebrations.
