Family Dinner 2015

16 November, 2015

This year we’re doing something a little different. We won’t be doing Thanksgiving. After talking it over for a few years, we decided that the whitewashing of history and the awfulness of the Pilgrims to both Native Americans and other colonists is not worth celebrating.

We also aren’t fans of Black Friday and reckless consumerism (oh, we’re still buying presents and decorating like bananas for Christmas, but we’re drawing a line here).
Still, we want to share a good meal with the ones we love. So, we’ll be having Family Dinner Friday this year!
