Happy Thanksgiving in a Variety of Languages…

As I celebrate this Thanksgiving Day with my family and our friends from Columbia, South America, I would like to wish all of my subscribers and those of you who are just daily random readers of my blog, a Happy Thanksgiving in YOUR language…I am very blessed to have all these countries represented as having logged into my blog at least once and many of them are “regulars!” Thanks so much! If you’ve logged in before and I’ve missed listing you, and you would like your country “represented” please let me know…

We got a little extra Thanksgiving treat today…snow! It was just a dusting and only accumulated about 1/2″ inch altogether.


To my subscribers in the United States, including Alaska, , Australia, Bahamas, Canada and the United Kingdom who speak English:
~ Happy Thanksgiving!

To my subscribers from Brazil and Portugal who speak Portuguese:
~ Feliz dia de Acção de Graças

To my subscribers from Venezuela, Spain, Mexico and Costa Rica who speak Spanish:
~ feliz Día de Gracias

To my subscribers from Estonia who speak Estonian:
~ Head tänupüha

To my subscribers from Tokyo who speak Japanese:
~ ハッピー感謝祭 Happī kansha-sai

To my subscribers from Romania who speak Romanian:
~ fericit Ziua Recunostintei

To my subscribers from Hungary who speak Hungarian:
~ boldog Hálaadást

To my subscribers from Greece who speak Greek:
~ ευτυχής ημέρα των ευχαριστιών ef̱tychí̱s i̱méra to̱n ef̱charistió̱n

To my subscribers from Germany who speak German:
~ Herzliche Danksagung or Fröhliche Danksagung’ and the day itself is ‘Danksagung’

To my subscribers from Italy who speak Italian:
~ Buon Giorno del Ringraziamento is the closest translation I could find…

To my subscribers from France who speak French:
~ le Jour de Merci Donnant (Not an exact translation, but this is how they would convey Happy Thanksgiving.)

To my subscribers in Israel who speak Hebrew:
~ שלום וחג שמח

To my subscribers in Israel who speak Arabic:
~ سعيد عيد الشكر

To my subscribers in Canada who speak French:
~ Jour de l’Action de grâce (Again, not an exact translation, but this is how they would say it.)

To my subscribers in Tunisia who speak Arabic:
~ سعيد عيد الشكر

To my subscribers in the Netherlands who speak Dutch:
~ Vrolijke gedenkdagen

And to the viewer from the tiny little island of La Possession, Reunion, off the coast of Africa, who speaks French: (Believe it or not, my “webmaster, Sarah,” who created this website for me, had a sister who visited Reunion as an Exchange student!!)
~ Heureux d’action de grâces (and I’ll try it one last time, hoping that it’s the right translation…)

I’ve just had a hit from New Delhi, India, and the way to say Happy Thanksgiving in Hindi is:
~ हैप्पी धन्यवाद which is said like Haippī dhan’yavāda or प्रकाशन

I hope your Thanksgiving Day is blessed with Family, Food, Fellowship and Fun!
Save a piece of pumpkin pie for me….

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

    And a big Happy Thanksgiving to you Jeanne! You are known the world over, I see! I am so happy to read your blog as I start my day in the wee hours of the morning. It just makes everything right!

  2. Jeanne, Happy Thanksgiving to you too, wish I really could share a piece of pumpkin pie with you!!! Love you bunches!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Jeanne! I’d be happy to HAVE a piece of pumpkin pie for you, but SAVING you a piece…I’m afraid that won’t work. Pumpkin pie is my favorite part. Yum!

    (Actually, we have a vegan square pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust this year that my daughter made.) I love anything pumpkin and if it’s healthy I can eat more!!!

    Wishing you a stress-free day filled with those you love.

    • HI Cindy,
      Happy Thanksgiving to you!
      Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites too! I actually have a crustless pumpkin pie that I make with a crumb topping. It’s delish! Of course, you skip the crust and have an extra squirt of whipped topping!
      Blessings, Jeanne

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you Jeanne! 🙂
