Let’s take a quick trip back in time, to the epic year of 1620. Picture this, a small ship, 102 Europeans, an Abenaki Native American, and then eventually an entire feast which has since resulted in one of America’s favorite holidays – Thanksgiving.
We can all “thank” the bond that developed between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims for both the fledgling beginning of one great nation, and the fledgling beginning of one incredible holiday.
From its origins to now, Thanksgiving is simply about giving thanks for all of our blessings, and spending time with loved ones.
