To me its kind of like TV if you don't like whats on, change the channel.
The only thing that stands between a person and what they want in life is the will to try it and the faith to believe it is possible. -Rich DeVos

With practice, you learn to ignore things that don't help [for me, it's most of the ads, a lot of the whiny b**ching on some of the threads and a lot of the 'scare' stuff about cancer and other diseases I (blissfully) don't suffer from.] Enjoy what you need, and let the rest go to those who need them.
This site tries to cater to an ENORMOUS variety of people, their needs, etc., and it is primarily a US site, even though folk from many other parts of the world take advantage of its presence!
Good success on your journey.

They were pretty hard to ignore, since most of the new articles were about it.
I know they were useful, but a bit of diversity would've been nice.

Several of those articles came in handy for me... I am glad they were there.
Just ignore any that do not pertain to you or interest you... something that can be done year 'round as necessary.

My suggestion would be to ignore it, or feel free to post about other Non-American holidays! People do panic this time of the year regarding diet. I'd much rather see a million posts about holidays, birthdays, etc. knowing that people here will continue to offer advice or support, rather than have them feel unwelcome to do so because maybe another post is just too much.
