Today, we're gathering with family and friends, enjoying the traditional Thanksgiving meal, and remembering family that has passed before. We're thankful for what we have and prefer to celebrate the spirit (or myth if you wish) of the first Thanksgiving, when strangers to this land were met with food and fellowship.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
BONUS: Just in case, if you need some facts to fall back on at the Thanksgiving table with angry Uncle Clyde, here you go. Or, alternatively, in the words of Stephen Colbert,
“This year, you have a family duty to treat your political opinion just like grandma’s jello mold. Choke it down and keep it down until the guests leave.”
