But I give thanks to those on the Web who are reminding us about the true nature of the holiday. Here are a few to check out:
Bethany House Publishers (BHP) features "Celebrating the Christian Year--Building Family Traditions around All the Major Holidays," by Martha Zimmerman, a "practical and motivational book that opens up joyful occasions for Christian families to learn about God through celebrating."
Christian History Institute presents the history of the Thanksgiving holiday--its origin and little known facts.
Youth Specialties (YS) publishes "Holiday Ideas" for youth groups with some great Thanksgiving ideas. Back to the Bible provides a history of Thanksgiving, along with a free 2001 Scripture text calendar. Its Bible Challenge trivia game topic for Thanksgiving week is "Foods of the Bible," so have a bite at it--and a bountiful Thanksgiving!
