Why Thanksgiving is an American Celebration of Immigration

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Michael Barron for Culture Trip gives us food for thought on Thanksgiving.  "Memoirs from Pilgrims William Bradford and Edward Winslow depict the Wampanoag tribe’s welcome of foreign settlers — which paved the way for the first Thanksgiving — and remind us that immigration is central to the celebration."  Here is a heartwarming immigration story ("A migrant crossed the border and found a scared, 9-year-old Arizona boy alone in the desert. The encounter changed them both") from Thanksgiving 2007

Thanksgiving is always a great holiday.  While I may be thinking some about immigration, I am certain to turn on the Green Bay Packers/Detroit Lions game. And to be eating pumpkin pie.
