What's Your Pilgrim Name?
It’s time again for turkeys, parades, and Charlie Brown specials! But as wonderful as all these things are, the real reason we celebrate Thanksgiving is to commemorate the feast shared by the Pilgrims and Native Americans in 1621. These European immigrants made a difficult journey just to arrive at and survive in the New World. So what if you had braved the Atlantic and traveled to America in 1620?
