THANKSGIVING DAY - 22nd November

A little bit of history...

In 1621 William Bradford, the Governor of Massachusetts, decided to have a Thanksgiving dinner for everyone. He wanted to thank God for lots of things. It had been a difficult year, but the people still had food to eat. He wanted to share this good fortune with the American Indians who helped them in those difficult times. That meal lasted three days. 
Today the traditional Thanksgiving meal is similar to the first.

 Usually there is turkey, sweet potato, corn and pumpkin pie

Thanksgiving is a special day for families to get together.

                                           It's on the fourth Thursday of November.
