There's a wealth of information about Thanksgiving to be found here:
History is what it is and no one can change that.
In our time, Thanksgiving should be exactly what the name implies: a day for us to stop and thank God for the bounty and grace we enjoy.
Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day is an annual one-day holiday to give thanks (traditionally to God) at the close of the harvest season.
Thanksgiving should be a day any American of any ethnicity or of any religious or political persuasion can enjoy and celebrate to the fullest.
I have actually celebrated several Thanksgivings with atheists and I swore I'd never do that again because of the obvious irony of it all.
If you don't believe in God, then its just another day of gluttony.
