Benson Stone asked:
<<Should we celebrate American holidays?>>

I was told that Thanksgiving was specifically set for Thursday so that it
would not be on any religious group's Sabbath. It was supposed to be a
time for National Thanksgiving and the history of the bill enacting the
holiday expresses such sentiments.
