Yes, happy Thanksgiving to you good folks. I wish we had Thanksgiving in the UK as it sounds like a lovely holiday.

You've obvioulsy never eaten thanksgiving food.

Not to mention, it's maybe the most American thing ever to think you can edit the need to "give thanks" down to a single day and then make it all about personal gluttony and pleasure . AngelAngel

I hope you understand that for some of us Americans it's about far more than personal gluttony and pleasure? It's actually about gratitude and giving.

Then why limit it to one day? Why celebrate it with a feast? Why time it with a false narritve of comradship with the native americans we eradicated?

I see a lot more buying (black friday), eating, gorging, and watching football than I do meaningful ways of giving thanks and gratitutde.

People that spend the day volunteering to feed the homeless? Now those people I dig, but I'd still rather see it spread out around the year.

RE: Canada Thanksgiving
Why have one day for Christmas or any other holiday?
Simply because there are those who limit something to one day only doesn't mean everyone does.
I love that my school puts on a Thanksgiving dinner for the community...not just the homeless but the lonely or whoever just wants to be with others. Does that mean it's the only day I or my family does that? If you do then you really need to meet my stepdad.
