Thanksgiving: Best Holiday Ever?

Ron Isaac of edwize is a big Thanksgiving fan. For Mr. Isaac it is the holiday teachable moment in America—all about family harmony and absent of corporate corruption. He goes on the record to all-but-declare its holiday perfection.

Thanksgiving Day stands alone among American holidays. Its inspiration is timeless and universal and it lends itself to teaching across all curriculums and cultures. There’s nothing about that holiday that is irksome to anybody regardless of national, political, or religious ideology. And its original meaning has not been eroded by entrepreneurs or braggarts of any stripe.
Thanksgiving Day is about the cohesion of the nuclear family and the link to the whole genealogy of all the races … It is about “family values” in the sense of that term before it was polluted by reactionary misappropriation.
