Welcome to my Thanksgiving page! It may not be much, But I had fun doing this page. I hope you like it and have as much fun visiting this page as I did making this page. Thanks for visiting and enjoy!


Sorry dude, It's that time of season again. The good old Turkey Hunt. So they say it's tradition, but where does it really come from? Hopefully, we'll find out within this page. *To stop the insane turkey hunt music, scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit the pause button. Quick, before we all loose our sanity.*L*

But first, The pros and cons of Thanksgiving!


PROS:


~ A few days off from school or work.


~ A good way to leave town for a few days.


~ Food, Food, Food, Galore!


~ Relaxation a plus.


~ Always good things on T.V at this time of year.


~ Most of all, togetherness with family and friends.


~ NYC: A great place to be for the holidays and the Thanksgiving Parade.


CONS:


~ If you're in high school or college, you still got research papers to do. And for those that just have one of those jobs that gives you 1 day off only. Bummer!


~ Holiday Travel: It is way too expensive & crazy to leave town for a few days around the holidays.


~ The cold weather, only if you are in the Northeast or Midwest.


~ The commercialism by Hallmark and others of Thanksgiving with Christmas yet to come.


~ Food, Food, Food, Galore (can be way too much, so watch the weight gain).


~ The stresses of being a good host for Thanksgiving with all your friends and family and cooking. *sighs*


~ NYC: The hustle and bustle of people shoving and pushing during the holiday season. Especially the parade!


When The Pilgrims Meet The Indians


When I was younger, the thanksgiving holiday was celebrated the way my history books had taught me. But now that I am older, and realize that I have some (a little bit) Native Indian blood, I know now that this holiday isn't much to celebrate. There is so much to be said about how this day really happened. About what really happened to the Indians. I've heard and read so many versions of different & the same stories. But these are stories that I may never find out the truth to. Will anyone know? Instead, this section I have made is to learn about our true owners of America before the explorers and pilgrims. The links below will direct you to Native organizations and personal homepages of our people. Visit and learn from modern Natives that voice and echo America's past.

T-DAY PARADE ON LINE.





NYCTourism.com parade on-line. Better to go here for updated features of this year's T-day parade 2001.


To me Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness with Family and friends. It is also a time when people should apprecitae other people whether it's inside of their family or outside, whether it's within their race or outside, we should remember to give peace to all kinds, all days of the year. We must also say thanks to our Lord for giving us everything we have recieved. I would also like to commemorate the Native Americans. For this is a hard holiday for them due to the fact that many of their people were betrayed on this day forward. So not only do I celebrate the history of this day, but I celebrate the lives that were lived and gone of the past ancestoral tribes. God Bless them!!! Have A Happy Holiday!!!!!!!!!!~FIREBIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!
