    For most of us, Thanksgiving is eagerly anticipated family time—an all-too-brief moment to gather 'round a cooked bird, some cranberry sauce, and a boatload of mashed potatoes. For others, home may be too far, that turkey may not be vegan enough, or the settlers of Plymouth Rock may seem more like villains than heroes.
