Relaxation and overeating
Who'll give thanks?
Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor
The "pilgrims" landed at Pilgrim Rock on December 31, 1620. Winter, struggles with poor or meager food, strenuous labor, biting wind that chilled to the bone, the ravages of disease. Half of the 102 Mayflower passengers didn't live to see Spring at Cape Cod Bay.
Indian Aid and a Blessed Thanksgiving
But . . . God sent Indians: Samose, Squanto, and Massasoit to help the settlers plant and hunt and fish. That autumn there was a bountiful harvest, and their first thought? A feast to celebrate God's goodness. NINETY tall braves accepted the invitation to that feast.
We teach our children to say thank you and please. Let's let our thanksgiving this year raise to the heavens!
Which country first adopted Thanksgiving as a national holiday?
Got no check books, got no banks. Still I'd like to express my thanks - I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night. ~Irving Berlin
