What Does Thanksgiving Mean to You?

I know what it means to me. Thanksgiving is a holiday symbolically commemorating the progressive genocide of the native North American people - a clump of mass murders explained away by ignorant concepts such as social destiny and European superiority - ironically spent by celebrating the very things that settlers took from the native people of the stolen American land: wealth, family, and home.

But that’s just my Thanksgiving. What’s Thanksgiving like for you?

I dunno man, at this point, I pretty well ignore all the historical context of Thanksgiving, and just think of it as a good-old-fashioned Harvest Festival.
