As my four days off of work come to an end, I think back on how much I enjoyed this holiday. Then I think about the conversation I had with a high school student last Wednesday. He was angry with his history teacher for saying that the Thanksgiving story was made up. Apparently the pilgrims never had a Thanksgiving dinner with Native Americans (I wish we could still call them indians). If you think rationally about the story, it does seem a bit far fetched. This really shakes my faith in holiday narratives. I guess that even if Thanksgiving is fake, I at least have something to be thankful for: Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and Cupid.
