Today's segment will focus on the reasons we are thankful, and to Whom we express our thanks.

We will look at the history of Thanksgiving in America (the New World) to uncover the roots of this holiday.

We will compare the Thanksgiving of history with the Thanksgiving of today.

We'll see that modern Thanksgiving has run "afowl" of its predecessor's tradition ... in more ways than one.

For background, we will refer to the history of Thanksgiving as outlined by the History Channel: http://www.history.com/topics/thanksgiving

For an editorial opinion, we will also refer to this blog from Charmaine T. Davis: http://www.charmainetdavis.blogspot.com/2012/11/its-not-turkey-day-its-thanksgiving-day.html
