i don't celebrate thanksgiving out of respect for the indians, since my grandmother, and grandfather happen to both have cherokee roots!

I think many native americans celebrate thanks giving, just as an excuse for family to get together and stuff their bellies. That's how it is in my family.

But then again, my family does that all the time anyways, so I guess we're not really celbrating any thing.

I celebrate, because whatever the reasons were for it starting aren't the same reasons why it's still celebrated. it's about spending time with famly and friends, the people who make your life worth living. i can get down with that.

From a retail point of view, the days before are the busiest time of year in grocery stores.

From working with meat, how else are we going to profit from selling all those huge hams that were cut form old sows? The food companies would have to throw them out. Instead give them a bargain price and clear the warehouse. Then break the people's backs from lifting all those cases of hams and turkeys while making little profit off of them. Stupid food industry.

"the indians saved the pilgrims... and then the pilgrims killed them" - nas





i enjoy the holiday for what it means to me and not cause some dumb ass holiday. While i suspect that its more of a tradition for family and friends to share time together.... especially since my family is so spread out these days... it gives us atleast once a year we can connect and share time together.... not to mention the grub thats gonna be gettin cooked up.

families should get together and fast from food, spending, and all drama

this day families should teach their children the history of thanksgiving

and give them ideas for tactics to make shure it never happens again

its not worth analyzing. like i couldnt care less the pagan origins of santa. it is what YOU make it, and thanksgiving is just getting together with family and there is nothing wrong or stupid about that. if you cant get together with fam and eat a turkey without dwelling on what europeans did to indians then i feel sorry for you

people celebrate food and a day off labor

just another way to keep people obedient to their calendars

a native celebrating thanksgiving ?


you already got the corn cobb in your ass

...out of respect for self and kind........but you have none


go on and eat that boiled ham, turkey ass pieces, and let the children in your family make little card board pilgrim hats and native head dresses and pretend like its all good - shit will never change cause yall submit to these practices that keep the conquerer on top

- you'll go where he's going

and spend so much more money doing it - they get so rich around this time of year - they came here taking shit and now we just giving them more by buying and getting fat off of their culture - we all contribute in some form though - throwing it all away would be the best bet

I hated going to school with white kids during Thanksgiving time. Making little feather hats, reading one little two little three little indians. Talking about how indians helped the pilgrims, and in return we all lived hapily ever after- It's degrading.

Exspecially around here there's a lot of racist people and it reflects on their kids.....

I celebrate ThanksGiving too give thanks for everything in my life. My family, my fience, my Step son and all the friends I have. I also gave thanks for my soon to be mother inlaw who had 64 operations in her life and thanks to God she still alive and kicken. Give thanks for everything we have that we take for granted.
