Happy Thanksgiving!Events & Holidays
The First Thanksgiving
The earliest Thanksgiving events were actually harvest festivals held in the British Colonies, at present day Berkeley Plantation in Virginia in 1619 and at Plymouth in present day Massachusetts in 1621. While they had limited success with wheat and barley, their corn crop proved very successful, thanks to Squanto who taught them (in Plymouth) how to plant corn in hills, using fish as a fertilizer.
While our thanksgiving celebrations have little in common with that of the Pilgrims, hopefully we still take the day to be thankful for all we have and for those we cherish. Thanksgiving is also a day when we should pause to think of those less fortunate then us that we may support them not just during the Holiday season but throughout the year.

This was an exceptional Thanksgiving this year for the whole family. It is always nice when we can take a moment, give thanks and really be thankful and appreciative for what we have.
Hope you aren’t braving the insane crowds today that I have heard reported!
Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful that I am close with my family and that I have friends like you and that we have the freedom to communicate with each other here on the wonderful world wide web. God bless you all.
