You could argue with me, but you’d lose, and in the end you’d agree with me. Yes, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for the blessings we have and the loved ones we share them with, but isn’t the traditional Thanksgiving feast the center of our thankfulness?
It’s About Sharing
There’s an argument that the meaning of Thanksgiving can be found in how the pilgrims and Indians shared their bounty and friendship, but once again food was at the center.
It’s About Football
Football, that’s what modern day Thanksgiving in America is about! Well yes, that’s part of it, but only after we’ve eaten and grandpa falls asleep in front of the TV during the Detroit Lions game.
It’s About the Parade
It’s the parade, that’s it! From local parades to Macy’s, Thanksgiving extravaganzas are a big part of the day, but they’re secondary to the food.
