Transcript of Thanksgiving

So, what happened?
The story we are told in our text books that the pilgrims landed in North America in 1620. They had a hard year, and were supported by the Wampanoag Native Americans, who gave them seeds and taught them how to plant crops. After the harvest season, the pilgrims held a celebration to thank the Native Americans for their help.
Why do we celebrate?
Aside from the historical issues, we celebrate thanksgiving in order to come together with our families and give thanks for what we have received and what has occurred.

Thanksgiving is the biggest and most popular family holiday. It is not religious and is celebrated by anyone who considers themselves to be American.

It is an opportunity for family to come together and celebrate over food!

In reality, the groups fought often, and the pilgrims committed many acts of genocide in the name of racial superiority. "Thanksgiving" were the feasts that followed the massacres.
