Weekend Links We Like to Link to – Thanksgiving Tradition

I should just call this blog “Links We Like to Link to,” eh?

What is Thanksgiving if not tradition? Sometimes slightly altered tradition (this day, both my wife and I will be hosting our first T-day dinner. That’s definitely a first). Stuffing (also, I remembered yesterday while serving at my church’s homeless ministry, referred to as “dressing”), cranberry sauce, turkey, ham, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, family, fist-fights, parades, watching and playing football, prayers of thanks, Charlie Brown, psalms, turducken, little kids tables, etc. We also need to add to the list reading about Pilgrims (and Puritans) and, of course, flying turkeys.

Books & Culture’s book of the week, reviewed by Abram van Engel, a student of the Puritans, is Sarah Vowell’s The Wordy Shipmates (you may know her from “This American Life” and The Incredibles). She asks, what is worth redeeming from the Puritans’ culture?
