I am curious to know and forgive me if I am asking too much of a silly question but, does Thanksgiving hold any religious barrier like Christmas and Easter? I assumed that is just a holiday where the Pilgrims and Indians made a peace offering and celebrated together but, U.S. History wasn't really my strong suite. Does anyone not celebrate in here? I am curious to know everyone's view point on this. We do celebrate and I don't really have a reason not to celebrate. I enjoy the family and togetherness of it all. I am very fortunate to have so many relatives on my dad's side and on James' side that love each other without the drama. We alternate yearly with family visits since the rest of my family lives 4-5 hours away. Most of his is in town or not too far which his parents have everyone over to their place.
