First time poster here....Hi everybody.
Reasons not to celebrate Thanksgiving....
1. It's a "worldly" and "nationalistic" holiday. (Isn't football....Super Bowl Parties, etc. kinda worldly and nationalistic too tho?)
2. Those pagan worldly people are actually giving thanks to God and spending time with families...I know, how dare they.
Reasons when it is acceptable to celebrate Thanksgiving, but not really celebrate it:
If you or your family fall into any of these categories, feel free to celebrate but not really celebrate:
1. Turkeys are a great price. I mean, who could afford to pass up those savings in these hard economic times? You can save like 5 bucks by getting a turkey now. (Jehovah always finds a way to provide for his people, doesn't he?)
2. Your whole family has the holiday off. (This is likely the "only" chance we have to spend with our relatives, isnt't it?)
If either of these apply to you, and your conscience doesn't object, then by all means feel free. Just make sure that while you celebrate without really celebrating, you never forget to remind yourself and those celebrating with you how awful and pagan those people are who are actually celebrating.
