Thanksgiving in Japan

So I was thinking about what kind of Thanksgiving do they do in Japan? So I did a little looking and I found that a very similar at the same time as our Thanksgiving, is Labor Thanksgiving Day or Kinrō Kansha no Hi, in Japan held on November 23rd.

The holiday is cited as an occasion for commemorating labor and production and giving thanks to all. The day is celebrated with a labor festival, kids making crafts and giving them to police officers, as well as lots of encouragement regarding the environment, peace, and human rights.

So stay thankful this season! It seems to be going on around the world lol.
