Thanksgiving – American or Christian?

Which is it? How do we definitively say?

If we look at who does celebrate it, we may get confused. Different cultures, different religions, etc.

But if we look at who doesn’t celebrate it, we start to get somewhere. Thanksgiving (on the last Thursday of November) is an American holiday, because people who aren’t American don’t celebrate it. Confirmed by Americans outside America also celebrating Thanksgiving.

You’re seeking your niche. You’re looking for people who are interested in what you have to say and who you can engage with in real conversation. But maybe this approach hasn’t gotten you too far.

What if you think about instead the people who aren’t celebrating you? What if your tribe is better defined by who isn’t paying attention than by who is?

    why does it have to one or the other? Why can’t it be both? Btw this is Joel. 🙂

      Well, I don’t think it’s both. Non-Christian Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, and Christian foreigners don’t. Except Canada. They celebrate it early because it’d be too cold otherwise 😛
