"Does anyone else fast on this day?"

I don't fast for Thanksgiving (and had actually never heard of doing that), but if I were an American Indian, I feel certain that I would! Too often we forget that side of our history.

I admire you for having your fast and hope it brings you insight and spiritual direction and peace. Thank you for making me aware of this tradition of many modern day Indians.

A year ago I wrote:

About the National Day of Mourning: www.pilgrimhall.org/daymourn.htm

Many others fast for spiritual, reflective and religious reasons as well."

By fasting, throughout Thanksgiving I am deeply thoughtful and the day becomes laden with meaning for me. Does anyone else fast on this day?
