When a Holiday is Also a Day of Mourning

At its best, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with those we love, share delicious food, and celebrate all the blessings in our lives. It’s a beautiful holiday for that reason. At the same time, Thanksgiving has a complex history that isn’t always acknowledged. Many Indigenous people call this a Day of Mourning. How do we make space for both the grief and the joy that this holiday can inspire? I will admit that it’s not easy, but here are three great books to read this Thanksgiving season.

    which section do I need to look for recipes that could be eaten in the main course.

      Hi Akbar. Turkey is what is traditionally served as the main course, with multiple sides. So, you’ll want to choose one from the Turkey section.

    What a brilliant round-up of recipes! And not just for Thanksgiving – there are so many celebrations at this time of year, running right through until New Year. Thanks for this, Eileen – and thanks for including a couple of my recipes – not being familiar with the tradition of Thanksgiving, it’s great to know they’re appropriate for this particular feast!

      Hi Angie. That’s so true. While the theme is traditional Thanksgiving fare, these recipes are worthy of any feast! And the fact that your recipes translate so well just proves it.

      Really?! Do chestnuts give you a stomach ache?? I think I may just have had the most killer stomach ache from chestnuts and am trying to track it down!
