Thanksgiving is a land use holiday. Good and bad, it touches on the many facets of Native American ownership, European colonization, and the spread of English property law. Groups that observed thanksgiving holidays tended to do so with respect for the circumstances that made life a challenge beyond anything most of us will ever encounter. It is an easy land use decision to acknowledge prior thanksgivings.
Thanksgiving--from the Pilgrims to Lincoln--also touches upon the meanings of citizenship with respect to the land.
Please check out Will Cook's post on the Pilgrims and land use, and have a most happy holiday. A happy Thanksgiving to all land use lawyers and practitioners.
