Squanto was the Native American who assisted the Pilgrims after their first winter in the New world and was important to their survival.

Why are Turkeys called Turkeys….
In the 16th century when "turkeys" were first introduced in Europe, there was another bird that was brought to Europe and England called a guinea fowl. The people that brought them from Madagascar were known as the “turkey merchants”. The birds eventually were referred to as “turkey foul.” Soon the name was shorted to “turkey.”
The First Thanksgiving….
The first “Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims on the fourth thursday of November in 1621.

By Khelsie, Taylor, and Destiny

The food they ate….

The food that the Pilgrims and Indians ate was different from what we eat for Thanksgiving today. They ate deer meat, various types of fowl (turkey), flint corn, cod, bass, and other types of fish.
About 280 million turkeys are sold annually for Thanksgiving. Which is about 7 billion pounds of turkey and about $3 billion dollars worth of sales. 91% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving.
During the first Thanksgiving the desserts were somewhat similar to ours. For example, we eat pumpkin pie, and apple pie just like they did in the 1600's.
When was Thanksgiving made an official holiday....
President Franklin D. Roosevelt changed the date from the last Thursday in November, to the fourth Thursday in November in 1939.
Thanksgiving Today....
During the first Thanksgiving, everyone gathered and ate together, but today we usually have smaller family gatherings.

42% of people will host and cook their family gathering and 43% will not host or cook a family gathering but will attend one hosted by a friend or family member.
