Thanksgiving is one of the nicer USAnian holidays: it’s very light on the religion and nationalism, and the consumerist frenzy is postponed to the day after.

Still, on the Christian radio channels I occasionally listen to, I’ve noticed an effort to Christianize Thanksgiving—to inject some Jesus into it. Sigh.

I don’t mind if they want to do it for themselves. There’s a certain logic of monotheism that drives it to put religion at the center of everything. It’s just unfortunate that conservative Christians are also committed to spreading their “good news” to innocent bystanders.
