Have a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday
The first Thanksgiving is thought to have been celebrated early in the 17th century by America’s first immigrants—the pilgrims. Unaccustomed to this strange, new land, the pilgrims befriended members of a local Indian tribe. Together with their new friends, the pilgrims gradually became acclimated to the new surroundings, learning how to harvest crops and hunt game. Having travelled here from England, the pilgrims of Plymouth Rock hoped that their journey would bring them not only freedom, but a new, bountiful life. For them, Thanksgiving represented a celebration of friends, family, and a more prosperous life.
After the official formation of the United States of America in 1776, the founding fathers made it a point to set one day aside for festivities. Though celebrated unofficially for several centuries, Thanksgiving was not declared a national holiday until 1863 by Abraham Lincoln. Since then, Thanksgiving has been celebrated annually on the 4th Thursday of November.
To this day, the tenets of Thanksgiving remain the same, even though it has evolved to include fare not initially enjoyed by the pilgrims. Signifying the kick-off of the holiday season, Thanksgiving is celebrated by many people differently. Some choose to take advantage of the “Black Friday” sales; others watch the beloved sport of football, and yet others enjoy time-honored traditions like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Despite the added commercial frills, the main reason for celebrating Thanksgiving is universal—giving thanks to all that we are grateful for.
At Zhang and Associates, P.C., we would like to wish our clients and their families a very happy Thanksgiving.

The best part of our job is to see our clients meet their immigration goals and attain the “American dream”. For us, nothing else is more rewarding.
We are particularly grateful for our clients’ support during the economic downturn. Thanks to you, our wonderful clients, we were able to come out of the recession stronger than ever before. From January to mid-November, 2011, we have had260 NIW, 181 EB-1, 235 H-1B, and 40 L-1 applications approved.
In addition, our firm would also like to commend the efforts of USCIS officers. Many officers have greatly improved their communication efficiency via phone and email. Their job is by no means an easy one; and as such, we would like to acknowledge their hard work.
