We are so thankful for the amazing community we have at Japan Crate, and we love seeing your creativity through photo contests. Read on to find out more about November’s contest. ^.^
Thanksgiving in Japan is known as Labor Thanksgiving Day, a national holiday where people give thanks to all hard workers.
The holiday got its start around 600BC as a celebration of the hard work that farmers would endure. When the ceremonies ended, everyone would enjoy trying the newly harvested food!
Today, it is celebrated by children making cards and writing letters to policemen, hospital workers, and anyone else that works hard. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we want to see what YOU are thankful for! Here’s how it works:
- Fill your Japan Crate with words, pictures, trinkets, and anything else that represents what you’re thankful for.
- Share a photo of your crate on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using the hashtags #cratesgiving and #japancrate.
10 crates will be randomly selected to win 3-month Premium Subscriptions to Japan Crate, as well as 1 of 10 different Japanese stationary kits so you can always keep track of what you’re thankful for!
