A Good Argument

 
After reading the article Stephanie referred to, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/11/19/AR2007111901695.html, I must say that it looks like the first Thanksgiving was actually in Virginia.  However, since there were no survivors of that Thanksgiving, I suppose the one we celebrate today is a happier story.
 
There is so much more to the Massachusetts story I didn’t mention such as the fact that the "Pilgrams" first emigrated to Holland before coming to the "New World."  It is a very interesting story.
 
Hope you are all enjoying your day, gail

  1. Thanks, Gail. I have to admit, as a child growing up, we were taught the Pilgrim version of Thanksgiving. Last night at church, we were reminded of the religious freedoms that the Pilgrims sought here in the New World. But no matter what our religion, what our background, today is a truly American holiday. Hope your day is truly grand.
