Now that we know why we celebrate thanksgiving, but should we keep celebrating it. So far, Thanksgiving has been made into a fun filled holidays, which bring families together. Some people believe the holidays should go on because it holds dear memories that people cherish. Usually at the dinner table, stories and jokes are shared. Laughs spread across the room, which could symbolize unity and love. Indeed, for some people it is something to look forward to after a long year of school, work, diet, and/or exercise. One day in a year, you can let loose and celebrate. In America, the traditional dinner main course consists of turkey and stuffing, sides could be pie, cornbread, cake, and more.
Here comes the danger of thanksgiving celebration. Some people believe that the origins of Thanksgiving are a combination of superstition, myths, and false Christianity, similar to Halloween. Others believe that there is no harvest in November to warrant a celebration. If this holiday is outdated and brings false harvest for a lot of struggling families, it may not be time to celebrate. Think for a minute, if for some reason this celebration is rooted in false Christianity, celebrated on false harvest in November, but definitely fueling obesity; since many families eat themselves to stupor and continues a day after, it is gluttony. If you do not know that gluttony is a sin defined in Christian doctrine, you will know that more than one-third (35% or 80 million) of Americans adults are obese (children not included). Obesity-related ailments include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, and some of the leading causes of preventable death. What are your thoughts?
