The History of Thanksgiving – 2016 Special

thanksgivingThanksgiving is holiday that most of us stress out over.  We start off by getting uptight about who is coming over.  Then we stress out over what is cooking when.  Lastly we stress out by what people say about our food.  What if I told you that eating until you puke is not the purpose of the holiday.  The purpose of the show today is for me to enlighten you about what it really means to celebrate thanksgiving.  What is the history behind it.  I want to tell you about what the purpose of the traditions that we have associated with thanksgiving.  Then a little spin on my reasons we celebrate.
