Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all
This year, The Prancing Papio is thankful for the continuing support of its readers and friends. Without you, I will be just ranting and writing into the void. I'm also thankful to Kambiz from Primatology.net and Anthropology.net for inviting me to contribute to his blogs. This year is The Prancing Papio's first Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
I'd like to share some interesting anthropological articles about Thanksgiving. "Rethinking Thanksgiving", by Vera L. Stenhouse is an interesting article about the myths and misgivings of Thanksgiving (Thanks Monkey Tales!) Also, an interview with Dr. Deborah Gewertz from Amherst College, "Who Knows: Deborah Gewertz, G. Henry Whitcomb 1874 Professor of Anthropology, on Thanksgiving". Thanksgiving is just not Thanksgiving without blaming the turkey for making you sleepy. "Thanksgiving Myth: Turkey Makes You Sleepy" from Live Science.
Hope y'all have a wonderful and tasty Thanksgiving!
