Editorial: Thursday is our day for giving thanks

Email

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It is a day for thanksgiving, family, friends and good food.

This fall celebration is now an American traditional holiday. However, it hasn't always been celebrated.

American Indians first celebrated their fall harvest at various times before the arrival of this continent's New World immigrants, the first European immigrants. Today, some American Indians consider Thanksgiving a day of mourning for their culture and people.
