If not why? If so why? I dont because i think the whole thing is wrong. The real history of thanksgiving is cruel. I want to know from Native American Indians and wiccan/pagans what they think. Im wiccan and I only celebrate the esbats and sabbats. I also teach my kids those days only.I dont do xmas or call it that. Its yule or winter solstice

I am pagan and I do not celebrate that day out of respect for the NA that were murdered

Yes, I do. I'm part Native American. My kids will KNOW what really happeend but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy some time with my family, eat some yummy food and blow up a few stuffed animals with fireworks.

Yupp I am Apache Indian and we have always celebrated it. My moms ancestors came over on the mayflower too. Its a time to give thanks to God and be thankful and celebrate.

We are Wiccan and we still celebrate with our Christian family. It gives us a good reason to get together. We do our own private celebrations at home.

I never knew how many wiccans there were in the world until I came on cm. (not being rude, just an observation) I'm Christian and not Native American but here's a bump for you!
