To call a holiday "Thanksgiving" begs the question... "To whom do we give thanks?"
We must assume that there is a person to have gratitude towards, in that an impersonal entity or object is incapable of receiving our thanks. Our giving of thanks to anything less than a real personal benefactor would be pure non-sense!
So who did they thank at the first Thanksgiving? They gave thanks to our loving Creator Father, God Almighty!
