Nov 10 : 14 days till Thanksgiving
Did you know that the Pilgrims trip to the New World aboard the Mayflower lasted 65 days?
It was a cold and damp journey, and since the ship was wooden, passengers were not allowed to light a fire for warmth or for cooking their food.
Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 24, 2011.
