I'll just bet you had a plate full of sour grapes to go along with your turkey and cranberries....
We eat a lot of turkey , chicken and fish having it on thanksgiving is no biggy but do enjoy the family gathering and happy faces .

The event we now know as "the First Thanksgiving" was in fact neither the first occurrence of our modern American holiday, nor was it even a 'Thanksgiving" in the eyes of the Pilgrims who celebrated it. It was instead a traditional English harvest celebration to which the colonists invited Massasoit, the most important sachem among the Wamapanoag. It was only in the nineteenth century that this event became identified with the American Thanksgiving holiday.
ISRAEL ALSO CELEBRATED A HARVEST CELEBRATION giving thanks to God for the harvest
You are absolutely right Pat! Having been born and raised in MA we were taught a bit more about the history of our state than others from other states were. We had field trips to places like Plymouth and heard visiting speakers at our schools that provided us with lots of information on our history.

I lived right near the King Phillip's Stockade on a hill overlooking the Connecticut River and lived nearby Massasoit's statue. It was like the kids who live near the Statue of Liberty....they saw it almost every day in their daily routine and knew the history behind how it got there....but the significance of things gets lost when you "get used" to seeing these things.

So pitiful and sad to have to go to such lengths to create drama in your life. You can't imagine how silly it looks to people who live with truth.

Thank you for starting this and may you as well as all others who appreciate the meaning of this day have a happy, blessed day filled with the love of family, friends God and Christ.
I am thankful that I have a God who loved me so much that He gave his only begotten Son to die a horrific death so that I may live eternally with my Father and Savior in Heaven one day.

Praise HIS HOLY NAME!
and happy thanksgiving to all!
Amen to this touching post!

What a miserable way to spend a holiday, visiting the Topix forum of a religion you hate and trying to start fights with them. You people are pitiful.

How can you even get all your shopping and cooking done?

I already had some turkey and cranberries today just because I wanted some.

You have to wait till Thursday. ROFL!
Today isn't a holiday, or is this the day you have your turkey

Yes, I remember as a child going on the almost obligatory class trip to Plymouth Rock.

I don't know if Plimoth Plantation was even in operation back then, but it's a really interesting place.

It's set up as a working historical museum with people in period clothes and the village built as it would have been when the Pilgrims first settled there.

There is also an Indian camp with actors portraying Indian life as it would have been back then.

Really fascinating place.

We visited Sturbridge Village several times as a child and then into adult years. I always loved going there! The same held true there....the period costumes and everything as authentic as possible, keeping to tradition.

There is a similar place up here near Cooperstown....we used to go there when the kids were still at home....it is set up in an oval...the school, the market, the saw mill, the Town Hall, etc....each one with it's own resident historian on the premises to give a rundown of their particular building. I love that stuff, LOL!

I've been to Sturbridge several times myself, although that museum is set up for a later time than Plimoth Plantation.

I once bought some hand-forged pewter buttons in Sturbridge that I used on a suit jacket I made.

Yup, Sturbridge Village wasn't far from where I grew up!
I think it was a 5th grade Field Trip, so cool.
I don't think Plimoth plantation was running when I was a kid either.
The "rock" is really pretty disappointing and obviously a rather new replica.
I need to visit the Plantation one of these days

Gee, I remember that we kids could do NONE of the most innocent of fun.
Tracing our hands to make a turkey would surely enrage "jehovah"!!
Meanwhile the adults from the KH all got together to eat and get drunk.
NO non-JW friends or family allowed, again as this would surely enrage "jehovah'!!!
And as usual it is the children of the cult that bear the brunt of the cruel policies of the WBTS.
