Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving

An annual event where we, the people, come together to celebrate and practice world peace and harmony.

Let us all join in a spirit of love, celebrate our differences,

and create 5,000 years of peace on earth!

Harmonizing with all in the spirit of peace. Dear Friends, I’d like to announce it’s our 26th Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving and yes, yes, yes it will be held at the ranch, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, like always. Starts at 1 pm and ends at Sunset with all of us lighting a candle and facing east, sending our love around the globe. Remember, it’s a day of giving thanks. People get high on giving thanks. No complaining, no talking about sports, politics, or religion. Only an ongoing conversation of gratitude, acknowledging all the good things tht happened to us in the past year. It’s free. It’s a potluck. Bring a dish that you made with your own hands, for 12. Smiles and laughter and music is what this event is about, and telling our kids that they are angels, in fact, we are all Snow Geese angels in helping to create Heaven on Earth. Check my website victorvillasenor.com and send us your email address, so we can gift you a free copy of my latest book, Our First Lady Pope. By the way, there will be an Apple Pie and Chocolate Chip Cookie baking contest to honor my late mother Lupe Villaseñor.

A quick Introduction: Victor Villaseñor

A gifted and accomplished speaker, Victor Villaseñor, in his candid and heartfelt manner, brings a fresh perspective to a number of universal themes, including pride in cultural heritage, the strength of family, dedication to education and personal achievement, the power of the written word, world harmony and peace.


Noted author Victor Villaseñor had a vision from his grandmother come to him one night in a dream. In that dream, his grandmother instructed him to promote a vision for world peace by gathering people together like snow geese who have flocked together in unison and harmony for over 20 million years.


In 1992 Villaseñor manifested his vision for world peace by creating Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving Celebration of Peace and Harmony.

A life-changing dream...

Annually the Sunday before Thanksgiving, it is a day for people to put aside their political, racial, and socio-economic differences and to come together with a sense of community. The first Global Thanksgiving was celebrated in Spain with only 70 people in attendance.


The second was celebrated at Plymouth Rock. Since then the Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving Celebration of Peace and Harmony has been celebrated at the Rancho Villaseñor in Oceanside, California and several other cities across the United States.

...now a global movement.

 The Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving Celebration of Peace and Harmony is open to all. Participants are asked to bring a food dish to share with others.


The Snow Goose Celebration of Peace and Harmony serves as a kickoff to the holiday season, and as a reminder that their family and local communities are but a microcosm of the global community. We are responsible for the tenor we bring to one another and the world.
