Here is why America truly celebrates Thanksgiving and shares an abundance of food with others less fortunate.
White settlers thanked God for helping the Jamestown Colony (a settlement established by English entrepreneurs in 1607) survive starvation from a low crop yield in previous years when the colony experimented with collectivist property (Socialism/communism) and commune work. They almost starved because some members worked harder than the slackers but the meager crop was shared equally.
When the land was divided again and given to each family to work individually (good ole Capitalism and private property), the colony thrived.
Thanksgiving is not just a celebration of a bumper crop and survival, it is the celebration of the triumph of Capitalism over Socialism/Communism in 1607 in the Jamestown Colony and later in other settlements such as Plymouth Colony in 1620.
Thanksgiving was a harvest festival for a bumper crop raised under Capitalist conditions following the colony's almost extinction by starvation under Socialism/Communism the previous years.
