My highly cynical view of Thanksgiving

My thoughts on the first Thanksgiving...

Pilgrim: Gee, mister Indian, thank you so much for helping us to survive in this new land...and speaking of land...

My thoughts on modern Thanksgivings:

I think too many people in this country have lost touch with the real meanings of all of the holidays, and Thanksgiving has become more about gluttony and football than anything else.

Having said that, I'd like to say that I'm thankful for my family and friends...most of whom now live far away. I'm also thankful for all of my readers, and not because they've put money in my pocket, because believe me, I'm not getting rich from writing, but rather for taking an interest in what I have to say...and I'm most thankful for the voices in my head, without whom, none of this would be possible.

I agree,

I am saddened with all the fighting that goes on at the stores and the malls all over material things that have nothing to do with the holidays as they were meant to be.

Yet I too am grateful for many things.
