“Freedom from Want” – Norman Rockwell, 1942

Wishing everyone on “The Patient Path” a very happy and healthy holiday.

Courtesy of my husband, Farok Contractor, I share these interesting reflections on our national day of gratitude: Second Helping: Thanksgiving Day and Globalization, a refreshed version of his November 27, 2015 post.

The original post provides interesting historical perspectives and fun facts about Plimoth Colony and Plantation, an Amazing native American named Tisquantum (“Squanto”), and the Mexican origins of our favorite Thanksgiving entree: turkey.

All the best on this most grateful and gracious of American holidays.
