The Pilgrims sailed to America from Plymouth, England in September, They came to America for religious freedom. The name of their ship was the Mayflower. Their voyage took 66 days. There were 102 people.
They landed at Plymouth Rock, in whats now the state of Massachusetts in December, The Native American Indians lived in America before the Pilgrims arrived.
The Indians taught the Pilgrims how to survive in America (to plant, to fish and to hunt). At the beginning of the following fall, the Pilgrims had lost 46 of the original 102 who sailed on the Mayflower.
The Pilgrims were thankful and decided to celebrate with a Thanksgiving feast. They invited 90 Indians who had helped them to share this feast.
The first Thanksgiving feast was not repeated the following year. It wasnt until June of In 1873, George Washington, the first President of The United States, proclaimed the first Thanksgiving Day for all Americans. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
Turkey – is an American native first domesticated bird. It is a traditional dish on Thanksgiving tables. Pumpkins and 'Pumpkin Pies' are a Thanksgiving favourite for about 400 years. Pilgrims probably made a pumpkin dish sweetened with honey or syrup. Pumpkin leaves were also used as salads. Cornucopia is the most common symbol of a harvest festival. A Horn shaped container, it is filled with abundance of the Earth's harvest. It is also known as the horn of plenty. The traditional cornucopia was a curved goat's horn filled to brim with fruits and grains. The use of corn meant the survival of the colonists. Beans are a special symbol of Thanksgiving too. Native Americans taught the pilgrims to grow beans next to cornstalks. The cranberry is a small sour berry. Pilgrims soon found out a way to sweeten the bitten cranberries with maple sugar. Sweet-sour cranberry sauce or cranberry jelly was on the first Thanksgiving table and it is served today. The Indians used the juice to dye their rugs and blankets. They taught the colonists how to cook the berries with the sweetener and water to make a sauce.
A Thanksgiving Day Parade (first in 1920) Thanksgiving Day is here today, The great parade is under way. Great balloons are floating by, Cartoon creatures stories high, Mickey mouse and mother Goose Snoopy and a lot of moose.
T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather. H for harvest stored away, home, and health, and holiday. A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance of the heart. N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember. K for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon. S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds. That spells THANKS for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving. Thanks!
