The truth is that the holidaywas and is celebrating the defeat, debauchery, death of people. It was giving thanks for extinguishing entire villages, tribes of people who had a right to live as they were. The history books do not teach the whole story. It is a shameful part of US history, just as slavery is
Any holiday tradition should be allowed to thrive, even if it goes against other religions. They are made to celebrate a certain time, date, and place. By banning one holiday you are going against all freedoms in the constitution since it is a persons right to practice and believe in whatever they feel like.
Thanksgiving should not be banned. Thanksgiving is a large part of American history and how all of us came to be in this wonderful country. In modern times, Thanksgiving is about getting family together and celebrating. Every year I enjoy hearing people take the time to reflect on what in life has made them thankful. This is a good tradition that everyone should practice.
