Happy Thanksgiving!

Rearden had dinner with his family on Thanksgiving :roll: , then went to Dagny's apartment, but she wasn't there, she was at Taggart Transcontinental, working. This was also the night before his trial. He goes to see her at the office.
Rearden says to Dagny on Thanksgiving before they have a drink of brandy to celebrate it:

Quote:
“You know, Dagny, Thanksgiving was a holiday established by productive people to celebrate the success of their work.”


Objectivists have written about the holiday, usually referring to it as “The Producer's Holiday”, here are some articles published in regards to it:
