Once again the holidays have crept up. For most of us, it’s a special time—that perfect combination of stress and, well, pass the box of wine. Between traveling, family drama (there’s always drama, right?), and getting all the food onto the table, it’s enough to make us question what being thankful really means.

Most don’t realize that in fact it’s a completely invented ‘tradition,’ woven from thin air about 200 years after the colonial celebration this holiday commemorates. The idea (surprise!) caught on like wildfire among industrial turkey producers; and the rest, as they say, is history. Modern Thanksgiving customs show clearly how we make up our own ‘traditions’ to follow – so why not create new ones, better suited to our own values of compassion and nonviolence?
