When one thinks of Thanksgiving, the first image to come to mind is a beautiful, stuffed turkey placed in the middle of the dinner table. However, is this turkey so vital to the Thanksgiving feast, that without it the holiday would fall apart? In an excerpt from his book, Eating Animals, Jonathan Safran Foer argues that the Thanksgiving turkey, despite its prevalence during the holiday, is not essential to its celebration. He establishes this claim by challenging the belief that Thanksgiving would not be the same without turkey. He also argues that if Americans are truly celebrating their thanks, slaughtering turkeys is not the way to do that.
However, it is quite easy to come across a family who have different values. Participating in this experience allows me to be able to see how important certain aspects of the holidays are to everyone. When working with clients, they may be fortunate to have all of their loved one’s with them, and their most important part of Thanksgiving is making sure that the turkey is cooked perfectly.

For example, in Thanksgiving, my mom sometimes makes the ham, my aunt brings the turkey while others bring mashed potatoes and corn. As for Christmas a feast is also being made as we all gather around bringing different varieties of dishes such as tamales, and posole.
One generally invites one’s friends to dinner, unless one is trying to get on the good side of enemies or employers. We’re quite particular about those with whom we break bread.” (Foster, 9) Through the breaking of bread, or in this case the laborious cleaning, cooking, and finally the eating of chitlins is representative of a communion, between the almost sacred bonds between a mother and her daughter. Throughout the exposition of the short story, we constantly see that the other members of her family reject the chitlins for being “country” or smelling strange. “My mother would tell my father she was considering fixing chitlins for the holidays. My father would groan, twist his mouth, and protest in vain.
Griet’s mother then becomes dependant on Pieter for the meat he sends her to feed herself and Griet. She also knows that if Griet and Pieter get into a serious relationship, everyone if the family would eat sufficiently for the rest of their lives because Pieter is a butcher. Griet 's mother and Pieter both assume their expected role as Griet’s mother begins to rely on Pieter for meat. In the same way Griet’s mother relies on Pieter for meat, Snow White depends on the Prince to save her life. In Snow White, the Queen constantly tries to kill Snow White out of jealousy.
In the third grade, I was asked to draw a picture related to Thanksgiving for a drawing contest to win a Toys R Us coupon. I remember the only knowledge I had of Thanksgiving was what my grade school teachers had taught me: the Pilgrims, people who wore tall, black hats shared a joyous meal with Indians, who were known as wild people who wore togas around their waist and feathers on their heads. Being a ignorant little boy, I drew what I thought Indians had to do to catch the turkeys as my picture; I drew an Indian man with a bow shooting an arrow right through the body of a turkey. With that picture, I won the contest. This thought of Indians in togas stayed with me until 9th grade when my world history teacher taught the class about the effects
