Thanksgiving Day and National Fasting

Happy Thanksgiving 

What if Thanksgiving was proceeded by a day of national fasting? The whole nation volunteering to go without food or drink for 24 hours and everyone donating the money they would have spent on food to the charity of their choice. The fast would end on Thanksgiving Day so everyone would still eat.

What would be the impact on American attitudes towards health, humanity, self control, and sacrifice? I look forward to that day.

In the mean time, enjoy this fall photo and be good to your family.

  1. You’d probably have a lot of very grumpy people. You’d also probably put a lot of people who grow and process cranberries out of business.

    On the other hand it would be more like the first year of the pilgrims where many starved to death because of their failed experiment with socialism.

  2. Steve – Thanks for your reply. I added a line to the post for clarification; “The fast would end on Thanksgiving so everyone would still eat.”
