Usually it is partnered with religious thought, but it needn't be, and I would say that it is more appreciative when observed in a secular manner.
Appreciate your wife, appreciate your family, appreciate your friends, appreciate any fortune that fell your way this year, but if you send those thanks to someone, send them to those who deserve them.
Who is responsible for your friends, your family, and your life?
Your friends, your family and YOU.
Love is compatibility made more intense by shared and positive experience.
Who made it positive?
Who got you that job?
Who made your life worth giving thanks?
Your friends did.
Your wife did.
Your children did.
Thank them and leave the omnipotent entities out of it, pretty sure he didn't control those people and make them love you and I am pretty sure he gets enough attention thrown his way already without stealing kudos meant for other people.
So don't ignore the important people in your life by giving thanks to someone you have never met for things he never did.
Take a bow for what you did, say "I love you" to those who love you, and enjoy the company of those who make your life fantastic.
Peace and Love
