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.
