On behalf of the entire U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Brazil, my wife Fatima and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to all Americans celebrating this Thanksgiving holiday in Brazil.
As we gather with friends and family, around dinner tables in the United States or abroad, we carry on with a tradition dating back nearly 400 years. This American holiday has come to represent a time to celebrate family bonds, the spirit of friendship, good will to those around us, and gratitude for the blessings of the previous year.
On this Thanksgiving, we consider ourselves fortunate to celebrate this day in Brazil, a country with which we share a strong friendship. The entire U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Brazil is thankful for the opportunity to serve the United States abroad and we wish all Americans a great holiday.
Ambassador P. Michael McKinley
