The First Thanksgiving


The First ThanksgivingThe first Thanksgiving, painting by Jean Louis Gerome Ferris

In the fall of 1621
, 90 Wampanoag Indians and 52 English colonists gathered for a three-day harvest feast. How did Americans get from that celebration to the Thanksgiving ‘traditions’ we observe today? The Christian Science Monitor has this story sometime back.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
