Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I like Thanksgiving. I like the fact that it hasn't been commercialized. I like the fact that though it is religious in nature, it doesn't belong to a particular belief system. Everyone can celebrate. I like that it isn't a political holiday - although it was officially started as an U.S. holiday in Lincoln's presidency, it celebrates a time of piece between British expatriates and the indigenous people of Massachusetts. Yup. everyone can celebrate.
(And, yes, popcorn is historically a Thanksgiving food. It was the first recorded time that Europeans ever had it.)
