In the US, today is Thanksgiving Day, a day set aside to give thanks the native Americans were willing to share and weren't better armed. So much of the iconography of America's Thanksgiving is wrapped in the flag of the Puritan's landing that we tend to forget what the Puritans brought to our shores. Things like religious intolerance, racial bigotry, ugly clothes and witches.
It's unfortunate the Spanish, who arrived and thrived in the America's long before the British, didn't have better PR or travel to the Northeast. Puritans may shutter at the the thought of spice, but it certainly makes the food taste better. Paella trumps roast turkey most any day.
