You’re absolutely right, Wolf. Please give away all of your money, so that you don’t have to handle idolatrous objects.

That having been said, Thanksgiving is called a religious holiday, because Washington and Lincoln declared it as a religious holiday;

“That we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions. . .”

“To set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. . .”

What does designating a special day to thank their god sound like to you?

Besides the fact that we don’t celebrate non-Jewish religious holidays, don’t we thank Hashem every day for all of the kindnesses he does for us? Without needing a special day to do it?
