Nearly 40 Percent of Americans Do Not Thank God on Thanksgiving: Survey
In research released last week, LifeWay surveyed 1,000 Americans to ask what they were thankful for and to whom they gave thanks at Thanksgiving.

LifeWay found that 63 percent of respondents said they gave thanks to God on the November holiday, which placed God at No. 1 on a list that included giving thanks to "family" (57 percent), "friends" (31 percent), "myself" (8 percent) and not giving thanks at all (7 percent).

Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, told The Christian Post that the 63 percent total, while No. 1 on the list, was still "a little lower than one might expect considering American religious preferences." ...

FDR "nothing sacred about the date"

“We here in Plymouth [Massachusetts] consider the day sacred,” the town’s first selectman said. “Plymouth and Thanksgiving are almost synonymous, and merchants or no merchants I can’t see any reason for changing it.”
Alf Landon, FDR’s Republican opponent in 1936, compared the President to Hitler.

The date of Thanksgiving in 1939 became a political hot potato. Politicians in every state had to read public opinion, examine the local business climate, and consider political loyalties before deciding which date to endorse. In the end, 23 states chose to stick with November 30, while 22 celebrated on November 23. Three states—Texas, Mississippi, and Colorado—decided to celebrate on both days.

It wasn’t long before people started referring to November 30 as the “Republican Thanksgiving” and November 23 as the “Democratic Thanksgiving” (or as some had it, “Franksgiving”). Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire asked sarcastically: “Has the President given any thought to abolishing winter?”

In 1941, President Roosevelt admitted defeat and declared that Thanksgiving would return to its traditional date.

Those 40 percent of Americans who do not thank God on Thanksgiving are the atheists.

It looks like the experts have not learned from all the polling done before the last election that showed Hillary would win. What happened? People didn't tell the truth to the pollsters.
In the same way, Lifeway is finding out that American Christians have a variety of views on lots of issues, and they are not perfectly consistent or logical. No one should be surprised.
All you have to do is ask the people sitting in the pew next to you at church. I would bet that they do not know the very basics of your denomination's special characteristics.

God should be thanked day and night, and a thanks not reserved for two days out of each year. A sister-in-law will pray over a meal at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This holiday was no different than any other as their really terribly behaved daughter snickered as she made jokes during the prayer, and as usual, it was allowed.

1 (A Psalm of praise.)
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD,
all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the LORD he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people,
and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.

Psalm 100

Washington, D.C.
October 3, 1863

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

President A. Lincoln wrote:
Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People....
