Thanksgiving is not a Holy Day from God. It is a National Holiday created for the purpose of celebrating war victories. The Thanksgiving narrative taught today differs greatly from the original presidential proclamations. The “first Thanksgiving” in 1621, is portrayed as a three-day harvest celebration between the pilgrims and the Native American Indians. Most accounts neglect to acknowledge what happened next in history. The Indians were driven from their lands and massacred. This was hardly the start of a period to remember with thankfulness. The “discovery” of America turned into the start of many wars in a new land.
