I think we should celebrate Thanksgiving because its a holiday where we reunite with the family and we eat a delicious meal. Though how the holiday was started was bad we don’t celebrate it like that. Plus no one ever teaches us the true story of history.

i think that we should celebrate that we get to be with our family on a day where people didn’t. Not that people were killed and stuff.

  salmagonzalez wrote @

I THINK WE SHOULD NOT CELEBRATE B/C THAT DAY WAS TO TO C3L3BRATE THE DEATH OF ALOT OF PEOPLE

  LEZARE.B wrote @

YES I TNINK WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING BECAUSE IT GIVES A REASON TO GET WITH FAMILY AND EAT

  Mr. Chardon wrote @

I believe that we should not celebrate thanksgiving because it is really thanks-taking. It is a celebration of the English taking the land from the Indigenous and killing them. Why would you want to celebrate the death of the Ingdigneous people? There are other ways to eat turkey and visit with family. It is not necessary to have this day to do those things. I think the day is a celebration that everything that is wrong with the history of America.

  SCHARMIKA wrote @

WE SHOULDNT BECAUSE LIKE COLUMBUS THEY KILLED PEOPLE JUST TO TAKE OVER THE LAND

  ; Ashley Nolen wrote @

I believe so because before I knew about what I read, I was celebrating it before. Also because what does Thanksgiving and doing what we do for Thanksgiving have to do with me and what happened with the Indigenous people. I feel like if I were a Indigenous Person, I shouldn’t celebrate it, but since I am an American, I believe I should =D

I THINK THAT WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING EVEN THOUGH MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THE REAL STORY BEHIND IT. EVEN THOUGH MANY PEOPLE MAY OF HAD SUFFERED I STILL THINK THAT WE SHOULD CELEBRATE IT . BECAUSE IT BRINGS FRIENDS AND FAMILY TOGETHER AND ITS FUN. TO JUST HANG AROUND WITH FAMILY AND GIVE THANKS.

  JOHANNA wrote @

THANKSGIVING SHOULD NOT BE CELEBRATED FOR THE KILLING OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE THAT IS WRONG.THANKSGIVING SHOULD BE CELEBRATED AS A TIME TO BE WITH FAMILY AND BE BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE. I THINK THANKSGIVING IS CELEBRATED FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS.

  DENISE wrote @

YES WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING BECAUSE YOU GET TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS .. IN THE PARTIES :0 LOL AND THE BIG PARTIES EVERYBODY BE HAVING …. WELL YAEH THATS WAT I THINK

  mmartin wrote @

Yes because despite what they did to the Indigenous people we still get to be with our family.

  LaQuesha wrote @

I Dont Really Mind Either Decision To Celebrate Thanksgiving Or Not. I Enjoy The Food Like Most People
Do, But At The Same Time What The Colonists Did To The Idigenous Was Extremely Cruel And Wrong.

  m@ribel wrote @

IN MY OPINION THAT I DONT THINK SO BECAUSE IT WAS SO WRONG OF KILLING INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. AND I DONT CARE IF THEY WANTS TO EAT AND CELEBRATE WITH THEIR FAMILY THAT IS OKAY TO BUT TAKING OTHER PEOPLE LIFE IS WRONG. WHY DIDNT THEY KILLED THEMSELVES BY TORTURING THEMSELVES OR MAKING THEMSELVES SLAVES.!!!????? THEY JUST WANTED TO SEE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE SUFFER NOT THEM?????!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that we should still celebrate thanksgiving because thats where I can spend time with my famliy. To me it’s very important to give thanks for every thing that I have family,friends,food ect. This is the only time where all of us can just sit together and to remember the good times and bad times. I WILL NEVER STOP THANKSGIVING FROM COMING!!!

  Yesenia B. wrote @

I think my opinion is 50/50. At the same time we should not celebrate because of what they did to the indigenous people. At the same time we should celebrate because of the family gathering.

  daisyesparza wrote @

  rENdy wrote @

I THINK YES BECAUSE FOR US THANKSGIVING IS WHEN WE THANKS GOD AND WHEN U SPENT TIME TOGETHER WITH THE FAMILY…..

  JESSiCA HERNANDEz™ wrote @

it doesnt mean the same thing no more now is all about giving thanks to food and family!!!!! =]
it was still mest up for them to do that but that was the past.!!

  Bryan Gonzalez wrote @

No because that was very messed what they did to the Indegenous people. Also because that would be celebrating of the murdering of many people.

  magali wrote @

Yes we should celebrate thanksgiving because your family gets together and you just eat food with them

  jonathan lopez wrote @

Yea we should beacause we didnt know what the real meaning was and I dont think its fair if we dont.We cant stop celebnrating because we already got use to celebrating thanksgiving.Lastly we made plans for that certin date and it will suck if we have to change thoose plansand we also get thoose days of school off.

  MACK SHORTY wrote @

WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING CAUSE THAT STUFF HAPPENED IN THE PAST.THE FAMILY TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER WELL.

  angelmata wrote @

I think it bad for people should not celebrate thanksgiving.Because people died on that date. The indigenous people died.

  unaiti wrote @

YES I THINK WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING BECAUSE YOU’RE SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY,AND YOU GET TO EAT MANY FOODS.AND WE DON’T CELEBRATE IT TO SHOW AND LAUGH ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO WERE KILLED.

  CRISTAL ZAVALZA wrote @

im in the both sides i think we shouldnt and we should.we should because we get time to spend with our famiy and we dont have to come to school.We shouldnt because the way we celebrate its the wrong way for the indeginous people on how they got killed,they were slavery,and there land got taken away.

  maria gutierrez wrote @

yes because we keep to spend more time with our family and get a chance to say for what are we thankful for but in the other hand we shouldnt because it was really mess up for what they did to the indigenous people.

  Abilenne C. wrote @

My oppinion is that we should NOT celebrate thanksgiving at all. My first reason was that we should NOT celebrate it because it was so unfair what the pilgrims did to the indigenous people.It was sad and just not good about what happend to them.

  DAVIDMORALES wrote @

  Cindy wrote @

Yes we should because everybody deserves to be with there family that day.Even though the first time that Thanks Giving was celebrated wasn’t the best time for everybody.But everybody should always be with there friends and family not to celebrate what people did in the past but whats people do today.

  Ricky wrote @

My family does celebrate thanksgiving.The way that we celebrate thanksgiving is by buying a turkey and putting it in a oven.All the family goes too my aunts house too celebrate…

  RILEY wrote @

i feel that it should be celebrated because it is a time for old and new family members to get together to have the biggest meal of the whole year , and if you dont have a family then it is a good time to find one.

Im Not Sure If We Should Or Shouldnt. I Think We Should Beacuse Its A Time Where We Give Thanks. But I Also Think We Shouldnt Beacause Alot Of People Died For No Reason. So we Should Celebrate It On A Diffrent Day Or Something. 8)

I voted Yes because I sort of want to celebrate Thanksgiving because it gathers friends and family together. I sort of don’t want to celebrate Thanksgiving because they sold 14 year old survivors into slavory. That’s why it’s a sot of. 😀

  raymondscales wrote @

yes because thats the day were we get to see your whole family.

  Cheyenne wrote @

WE SHOULD BECAUSE IT IS TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT WE ARE THANKFUL FOR

AND I THINK WE SHOULDNT BECAUSE WE ARE CELEBRATING DEATH THAT SOME FOOLISH PEOPLE DID JUST TO TAKE OVER SOME LAND

  alvaro wrote @

yes because we get days off school. n we get to have time with the family

  brittney clark wrote @

i think we sold celebrate thanks giving becouse most people dont look at it as a way to celebrate the white people killing those hundreds of indegenoous people.
i think they rather see it as a day of joy where they can keep all their family close together and share a nice meal with everone. as if for me i think i do like thanks giving becouse my mother makes the best turkeys. i also get to see all my other family that i havent seen seen since last thanks giving.

  Ricky wrote @

I think we should celebrate Thanksgiving.The reason for that is because the food is really good.Another reason is because we get to have some family time.

WE GET 2DAYS OFF SCHOOL 🙂 🙂

  carina diaz• wrote @

yes and n0. n0 because it was wr0ng what they. 0ne reason is that they killed lots of people. secound they took over the land. and last they sold the survivers to make them skaves. Yes becouse we have food and everyone was to eat. it brings friends and family toghether. Lastly because we have lots of fun and have time to talk to family that we havent seen in a time.
