Ahead of Thanksgiving Day, which will be celebrated amid the COVID-19 pandemic and following a divisive election, a new survey shows that the majority of Americans still have a reason to be thankful.

The poll from Nashville-based LifeWay Research shows that more than 84% of American adults say they are thankful for their family, 69% are thankful for health, 63% for their friends and 63% of Americans are thankful for memories.

“In a year that has been difficult for most, Americans still express a lot of thanks,” the executive director of LifeWay Research, Scott McConnell, said. “This year of loss and division does not mean people have an absence of good things for which to be grateful.”

On Saturday, the United States surpassed 12 million confirmed coronavirus cases with more than 255,900 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

The LifeWay survey, conducted Sept. 9-23 with 1,200 Americans, says only 33% of Americans are grateful for their achievements on Thanksgiving and 21% express gratitude for their wealth.
