If we know that the Thanksgiving story that many of us learned (and still do learn) as children is a myth, then why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? It still has a great meaning for many of us as a day to gather, feast, spend time with loved ones, and observe personal or family traditions. While it is important that we acknowledge the harm brought by the origin story, we can still celebrate in a meaningful way.
