A time for family, feasting, and giving thanks for everything and everyone dear to you. It’s a time of reflection. It’s a time of compassion. It’s a time to welcome people into your home as guests around your table.
And it’s a time for those guests to force cultural and spiritual hegemony upon you through strong-arming, abject cruelty, and brute torture unless you learn their very valuable lessons about loving thy neighbor and cherishing your family no matter what.
So, pass the cranberry sauce. Who wants to give thanks first?
