Nov 16 : 08 days till Thanksgiving
Did you know that there is no historical evidence that the first Thanksgiving included turkey, which is, of course, the centerpiece of today’s Thanksgiving meal?
There was, however, mention of wild turkeys in a book written by Pilgrim Governor Bradford.
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.
