Thanksgiving, which we've been celebrating in America for centuries now, is a time of family, food and, especially, tradition. Even so, many of the stories we take as gospel about this wonderful holiday—wonderful if you’re not endlessly bickering with your relatives, that is—aren’t true at all. Myth, legend and wishful thinking play into a lot of the misconceptions surrounding Turkey Day.
I hope today is a day you will fly your American flag outside your home or business. It is a proud symbol of our great country and the people who have worked so hard to make it so great. Like all symbols of respect there is a certain decorum that needs to be followed and some stories you may have heard that aren't exactly true.
