Burgold Posted November 21, 2007 Share Posted November 21, 2007 I've always celebrated Thanksgiving as a secular holiday, check that as an American Holiday, but in recent years I've come across those who believe that it isn't that at all, but a religious holiday. A thanks to God for the Harvest and the good in their lives. or A prayer for continued good in their lives. My family always treated it as a coming together and a time of sharing everything that we had with everybody. Sort of like the elementary school version of the starving Pilgrims being saved by the largess of the Natives. It seemed to me to be a holiday independent (not of God necessarily) but of religion, one that all faiths could enjoy equally. A celebration of the harvest (metaphorically and gastronomically speaking. Others have told me that I'm wrong. That it is, in fact, a Christian Holiday. What do you all think? And what's your favorite Thanksgiving treat? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
