I know some people get into a tiff about thanksgiving because the immigrants to the United States of America and the Native Americans have a bad history. However, do not throw a baby out with the bath water. The origins of thanksgiving can be traced long before the colonizing of North America and there is much we should keep from the tradition. Like food, family, friends and being god damn thankful one has those things. So every year 30 or so people cram into my tiny apartment bringing with them food and wine so we can sit around and give thanks for all the blessings of the year. Also, my motto, every dinner party should end in a dance party (this allows one not to worry so much about the calories 😉 ).
