    “Le plus ca change,” there are now the annual news-stories on how Thanksgiving food is

    – bad for you, or
    – bad for the environment, or
    – boring and needs to be “deconstructed” (molecular turkey infusion, anyone?)

    Whereas most of us out here are going “but this is the one time of the year we get pumpkin pie!”Report

    Ah, the heady, heady days before Franksgiving was even an idle thought in anybody’s head. Say what you will about FDR, he managed to turn celebrating Thanksgiving into something that, dang it, you *HAD* to do (whether it be a week early when the good people ate it or the old designated time when the reactionaries ate it).Report
