We have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day
Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014 — Harvest celebrations are probably as old as civilization, but here in America, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day based on the history and legends of that first Thanksgiving back in 1621 following a brutal winter in which the Pilgrims and the other colonists who arrived on the Mayflower in December 1620 lost nearly half of the original party.
Historians suggest the colonists probably would not have survived at all had the Native Americans not helped them and showed them how to grow food on the new and foreign continent.
The celebration back in 1621 lasted for three days and 91 Native Americans joined in the festivities. Not only was there a place for everyone at the table, everyone contributed to the feast.
