How to use the preposition "thanks"?

 

We thank a friend for the help, good weather, which was established during the campaign, and much more. Gratitude is one of the highly moral qualities of a person. You need to be able to thank for something good, good.

But is it necessary to thank for rudeness, cruelty, anger? Do we thank the disease that prevented us from going camping? Of course not.

Therefore, the expression"Thanks to the disease"lexically wrong. Pretext"Thanks"need to replace with other prepositions:because of, owing to.

Compare.

WRONG. RIGHT.
