The truth of Thanksgiving has nothing to do with the spirit of it
Please read this article about Thanksgiving, by co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, Gene Baur:
Dark, filthy warehouses that reek of excrement. Masses of animals in distress. Mutilated beaks and toes. Sick, injured birds left to suffer and die without anyone to help them. These are not the kinds of images we tend to think about at Thanksgiving, yet they are indicative of the reality faced by more than 46 million turkeys raised every year in the U.S. for this holiday alone.
