Thanksgiving - Understanding The Holiday

 Thanksgiving to most folks means family and friends and Turkey, or maybe beer and football. Many do not know or even care about the significence of the Holiday. Way back in the 1600's a group of people who were members of the English Separatist Church (Puritan's) in England fled their homeland to escape religious persecution. They boarded a ship and sailed to Holland in the Netherlands.

You hope your mother will offer to handle Turkey Day; you try dropping not-so-subtle hints, but she’s unsympathetic and doesn’t take the bait.
