While up here in Canada we had our Thanksgiving back in October our friends to the south are currently enjoying “turkey day” and we would like to wish them all a day full of joy and the hope that the traditional dinner with the family and inlaws goes smoothly.
For those interested in learning a bit about the origin of this historic day, the trials and tribulations of those who sailed on the Mayflower, and what life was like back them in an easy-to-follow and graphically pleasing manner there’s a great area on scholastic.com on just this topic. A very good read that taught me much about the history of this important holiday. You can view it in the scholastic.com website at http://teacher.scholastic.com/thanksgiving/.
Happy Thanksgiving !!!
