To all our American friends and colleagues, in USA and especially the ExPat community in places like China, Happy Thanks giving from all of us at QPI Ltd.

We hope you get to enjoy some Turkey & Pumpkin Pie.

我所有中国朋友们, To all my Chinese friends….

Thanks Giving is very much a North American holiday and it is really only celebrated by Americans and Canadians.

For the Americans especially it is a very important holiday for the family to celebrate a feast together.

There are various stories about its origins being the celebration of the end of the harvest, safe passage from Europe, and especially about the Native American Indians helping early colonists.

The hallmarks of a Thanks Giving feast are Turkey and Pumpkin, both of which are from North America.

While I have enjoyed some Thanks Giving Dinners with American friends as I am Australian, so like most parts of the world we do not make a point of celebrating it as a holiday.

I may be amused if you do wish me a happy thanks giving, but I certainly will not be offended if you do not.
