There really is little for me to add about the Flemish contribution to Thanksgiving. What's more, I will actually be in Flanders for a few days immediately after Thanksgiving (on business, so unfortunately I will not get a chance to visit as I would like to).
For those of you contemplating the nexus of Flanders and Thanksgiving (and of course the Flemish contribution to this very American holiday), I gently offer a redirect to my earlier piece on this subject: http://flemishamerican.blogspot.com/2009/11/flemish-influence-on-pilgrims-part-5.html
