For example, if someone is having a rough time everyday of their life struggling to stay alive and healthy, they do have something to be thankful for. The people everyone sees on the streets asking for money have something to be thankful for. They should be thankful for having the chance to be alive at that moment.

As studied by Janet Siskind, the American Thanksgiving celebration is actually a very detailed ritual that contains many symbols. Similar to other rituals, the holiday reinforces certain social structures and “…reaffirms values and assumptions about cultural and social unity, about identity and history, about inclusion and exclusion” (168).
