    As one of the newbies here in Politics, Religion, Social Issues I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving - Stay Safe and Eat Well...

    We're cooking two 15lb Tur-Duk-Hens just received from Cabelas, pounds of Taters, couple sweet Taters, 12 lbs of venison, acres of home fries, couple gallons of brown gravy, field greens, baked cranberries, and a few loaves of sweet corn bread, with aged barn apple cider from oak keg... It's way too much but lots of folks are visiting...

    Now, I don't know much about this, but my wife tells me native Americans aren't ever too happy about Thanks Giving (whatever it's about exactly :confused: :eek: ).

    ^ I laughed. I've got simple humour.

    Hey man, I said a little more than that.

    But here is some more information

    http://www.genealogyforum.com/gfaol/Thanksgiving/NAPerspective.htm

    To summarize - the native americans helped the pilgrims out and ended up getting screwed BIG TIME for it.

    I celebrated thanksgiving in the US but only as a time to get together with family. The holiday has much more sinister roots.

    Thank you, and I hope your family has a great Thanksgiving as well!
    If you have any leftover home fries and gravy, be sure to send it my way.

    Have a great time. Football and holidays are awesome. Several years ago my family and I went to the Titans vs. Cowboys MNF game on Christmas day. It was awesome. We tailgated with crablegs and all kinds of food. Enjoy your time with family. :)

    You sir, definitely know how to tailgate in style! We won't tailgate at this game as we are having our meal around noon and the game doesn't start until 6:20pm.

    The graphic that Peterkro posted is actually very accurate. They taught the pilgrims to cultivate the land, the pilgrims (and those that came after them) responded by committing no less than genocide against them. So I suppose you could say there is a little friction there. :eek:

    Agreed full-heartedly. I'm getting all giddy thinking about it.


    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    I hope to celebrate the Broncos end to a 4 game losing streak! But I'll be with my wife and 2 kids, so the game is really secondary. Have a great Thanksgiving.

    I love these new NFL Thursday night commercials. The guy's voice is really what makes it. Last week for the Dolphins vs. Panthers game it was "Here Kitty Kitty!" That was awesome!

    Sorry, but those things are not mutually exclusive. Festivus can be greater than any holiday AND Winterval>Thanksgiving. Both can be true at once.
