  • Lets see how did Thanksgiving start... OP is right... look up the Origins :-) There are secular stories and Christian ones.
    It has to do with Giving Thanks to God for a bountiful harvest, they were without nothing the previous spring... they prayed and with the help of the Indians ... they were able to make it through another winter.

  • Thanksgiving is for everyone, it has nothing ot do with religion. It's all about being thankful for what we have, that's it.
