IMG_20171125_185538.jpgHope you like the picture of my cranberry sauce, the one made with the the recipe that used to be (still is?) on the packaging bag-- cranberries blended with a whole orange, and sugar. This year I made it in advance with a little kombucha to enliven, in the hopes that it would keep longer without fermenting alcoholically... and be a bit probiotic. Every year I celebrate Thanksgiving here in Britain, as a touchstone with my kids to the traditions I grew up with. For a decade now at least I've made a discussion of the history of the colonisation of the Americas part of what goes on-- exploring the myths and lies of the holiday, and the shared experience of native peoples there.. I can't really sit with the historic (and contemporary) violence without acknowledging it. When I read Anna Brones's piece below, it was so spot on, I wanted to share it here on my blog. As people in Britain increasingly celebrate this holiday, feeling grateful and loving with friends and family, enjoying the seasonal foods of autumn, gathering to feast, I hope there will not be here the same mistake as in the US-- feeling grateful for everything we have at the expense of what people have lost, often horrifically, to make that happen for "us."
