I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers and fellow bloggers a very happy and safe Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful day of family, friends, food (too much of it), and football.
And yes, even us atheists celebrate Thanksgiving. I know some people think this is just another christian holiday, but it isn't. Anyone of any religion (or no religion at all) can be thankful for the good things and good friends that have come their way. I certainly am, and I like to take this day to be grateful for those.
Even when I look back at the first Thanksgiving, I see it more as the new settlers giving thanks to the Native Americans who taught them how to live in the New World. Isn't that enough?
