Thanksgiving 2010

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.  If you care for some holdiay-related land use thoughts, we had some previous posts on Plymouth, MA (site of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving*) possibly becoming the Hollywood of the East; Will Cook on The Pilgrims and Land Use; and an assertion that Thanksgiving is a land use holiday.  

* I know better than to wade into the controversies over which place had the true first Thanksgiving--Plymouth (1621); Berkeley Hundred in Virginia (1619); or even St. Augustine, Florida (1565).  Regardless of who was first, thanksgiving feasts since the beginning have been celebrations of the relationship between the community and the land.  Enjoy your holdiay!
