Thanksgiving Traditions: How our family celebrates today.
In my family, Thanksgiving is a complicated holiday. For many Americans it is a time to spend with family, but also a time to reminisce about "Pilgrims and Indians" and the story of the "first Thanksgiving feast". However, for other families, like mine, it is a reminder of the genocide and atrocities that soon followed ...

Thanksgiving
It is America's Thanksgiving Day today! So, as an American (not living in America), we will be celebrating... (er, sort of). My 2-year-old went to nursery, my husband went to work, I'm not surrounded by extended family, and there is no parade to watch! But, nonetheless, we will be feasting on the usual turkey fare ...
