A pandemic apparently has led many Americans to reorient their life and to re-think what they are thankful for, a new LifeWay Research survey shows.

Compared to a similar poll in 2016, Americans today are about as likely to say they are thankful for family but less likely to say they are thankful for fun experiences, opportunities, achievements and wealth.

A total of 84 percent of Americans today say they are thankful for their family, a number similar to the 88 percent who answered that way in 2016. . . .

But only 45 percent in the survey say they are thankful for fun experiences, compared to 53 percent who answered that way in the earlier survey. A decline also was seen in the percent of Americans who say they are thankful for opportunities (42 percent this year; 59 percent in 2016), achievements (33 percent vs. 51 percent) and wealth (21 percent vs. 32 percent).

Americans are four times more likely to list “family” than “wealth.” In 2016, they were about 2.5 times as likely.

Other categories that saw a decline include health (69 percent vs. 77 percent in 2016), friends (63 percent vs. 71 percent) and personal freedom (53 percent vs. 72 percent).

Meanwhile, Americans say they typically give thanks on Thanksgiving to family (68 percent) and God (67 percent). Both are increases from 2016 when 57 percent said they give thanks to family and 63 percent said they give thanks to God. Only 16 percent say they give thanks to “myself.”

“Giving someone else thanks is not a given on Thanksgiving,” McConnell said. “But four times as many people give thanks to family or God than choose to thank themselves.”

The survey was conducted in September and based on interviews with 1,200 Americans.

  1. This is a very good article and I was pleased to see that the central point for thanks increased around being thankful to God for all things and for family. Thank you Father for you love to us, for the privilege to live in the USA and for the privilege to serve you as an example of this love toward others in our circle and beyond.

    Amen! 2
  2. I want to express my gratitude to God the Father, Jesus the Redeemer, and Holy Spirit the wonderful Counselor for all they have done in the past to bring the United States of America’s into existence and sustain her through many trials; for all they are doing now to cleanse this nation of the corruption, evil, and occult practices that have sneaked in; and for the victory we are going to see manifested of God’s perfect will done in America as it is in Heaven.
    Praise God from whom all blessings flow in the mighty name of Jesus and through the power of His blood. Amen.

    Amen! 5
  3. In a time of uncertainty, God is always certain. I am thankful for everything God gives for God makes this life more worthwhile, with family, friends, work even with the pressures put on. For we get to live, we get to breathe, we get to have all these things. Thank You God for everything.

    Amen! 13
  4. I am so grateful to my wife and family members but even more grateful for the mercy, grave and love of God.
    2020 has been a year of unrest yet we see God’s hand continually at work.
    As just 1 person in a nation of millions, I look forward to praying for God’s will to be carried out in our country.

    Amen! 12
