Pop megastar Justin Bieber took to Instagram over Thanksgiving with a heartfelt post about relationships and his faith in Jesus Christ. For many, the holiday season may be one marked by joy and family bonding. But for others, it can be a little less comfortable as the family comes together once again with all its history and relational baggage.
“Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone,” Bieber wrote November 23. “First Thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting Thanksgiving. First time both sides of the family has come together.”
