When is National Thanksgiving Day?

National Thanksgiving Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Liberia on the first Thursday in November each year.

History of National Thanksgiving Day

Each year, the Liberian President issues a Proclamation for this holiday declaring the day as National Thanksgiving Day, to be observed throughout the Republic as a National Holiday.

The Proclamation calls on Liberians and foreign residents within the borders of Liberia,  Priests, Imams, Bishops, Pastors, Clergies as well as religious organizations in the country to gather in their various places of worship and offer thanks and praises to the Almighty God so that He may continuously protect the Nation and its People.

The National Legislature of the Republic of Liberia enacted a statute in 1883, declaring the First Thursday in November of each year, as National Thanksgiving Day.

The Proclamation says it is befitting that a day has been set aside for the Nation and its People to give thanks and adoration to the Lord for his dispensation of grace, mercy and provision as well as the preservation of lives.

The Proclamation further noted that the People of Liberia have always given thanks and praises to the Almighty God for his tender mercies and manifold blessings bestowed upon the Country, especially for continuous protection in time of peace, disaster and other natural phenomena over the years.
