I have to chime in on this old thread.


I have wished a couple "Happy Thanksgiving" only for them to tell me that they are "non-theists" and that they do not celebrate or acknowledge Thanksgiving. Then they gave me a lesson (which I did not understand) to explain the difference between a non-theist and an atheist.












I have also been told my a woman who happened to be Muslim that she does not like Turkey but that if a Muslim from her community wants to celebrate Thanksgiving, they do it on Friday because it is not their holiday. I still don't understand what the rationale was behind this but I just smiled and listened politely....

Harris Teeters sells Empire kosher chicken. It's not a restaurant.

Fayetteville has a Conservative synagogue on Morganton Rd.; it's the only synagogue in the area.

You can get chicken (Empire) and hot dogs (Hebrew National) at Harris Teeter. Sometimes you can find kosher meat at Trader Joe's in Cary, but you have to call ahead and check first. The only place to get it consistently is Gleiberman's in Charlotte. You can also have it shipped in.

I doubt Hebrew Nationals are really Kosher, I would be kindly tickled to find out that they were Kosher.
