ROFL oks I want someone to post something about this thanksgiving thing because I am clueless here!
Sanity, it depends who you ask! Americans traditionally give thanks on this day for everything they have to be thankful for – usually family, good health, the safety of military sons and daughters, etc. The holiday was inspired by an event long before the US was a country, where supposedly and simplistically, “pilgrims” from Europe collaborated with Native Americans in order to survive the scourges of nature, hostile neighbors, etc. Supposedly they had a joint feast to celebrate and give thanks to God for their success / survival. Hence the modern-day Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey is the preferred meal, presumably because that’s something the pilgrims and eastern Native Americans would have eaten. I am sure there’s a lot more interesting stuff in the tradition – like why do we always have yams – but I’m no expert; I just show up and eat the turkey and pumpkin pie.
Actually… “Thanksgiving” was done by the Pilgrams as purely a spiritual offering to God.
Initially the Pilgrams would gather on Thursday (mid-week) at their church(es) to praise and give thanks to God. Eventually this morphed into the Thankstgiving day celebration.
However, it did not become a country-wide celebration until George Washington was president.
All that Indian/Pilgram celebration from “day one” stuff is the result of Government Schooling slighting the true beginning (origin) of the celebration.
Good one Sue. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
