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.
