As the holiday season approaches, we at the Scene take a moment or two to reflect on the idea of "home" — what it means, where it matters and how it evolves over time. We start at the beginning, with the origins of celebrating Thanksgiving in Nashville. (It almost didn't happen!) We talk holidays, Christianity and Rachael Ray with a Kurdish-American Muslim family in South Nashville. We don't call it a comeback when we delve into a beefy Nashville holiday original that's found its way onto local platters by way of a new preparation. We visit with a man who finally has a place of his own to hang his hat after years on the street. And finally, we direct your attention to some of the many events vying for your attention. Welcome.
