Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is here! It not all about the food we eat, it's about spending time with our family and loved ones. Actually at the first thanksgiving they did not even have turkey. Here is the true story of Thanksgiving.

In the 1600's there were several people who wanted to worship God freely.  England let the people go after much pleading. They arrived in Holland they were able to worship God, but they were starting to become mix up with the the people of Holland. The pilgrims decided to go search for a place where they could speak their own language and worship God freely. They were trying to reach land which is today known as present day New York.  They got off course and landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts. They built houses and shelters. Sadly, many of the Pilgrims died from illness. They were greeted by a Native American named Samoset.  He welcomed them to the new land, and brought back another Native American named Squanto that spoke good English. Squanto helped them grow crops and taught them to fish. The Pilgrims decided to make a big feast so they could be friends with the natives. They thanked God for the Native Americans, the food, and asked Him to bless their land. That is the story of Thanksgiving. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

God Bless,
