Thanksgiving History Lesson(s)

 Here is a bit of history about this week's coming holiday--Black Friday!

Oh, no!  I mean Thanksgiving. Although if you watch the video, you will learn of a move by FDR to connect the day of thanks with an opportunity to do your Christmas shopping.

Apologies about the ads, but hey, it is the holidays.  We are all used to them.

I like the kids' interpretations of the first Thanksgiving here.

Hope everyone has a happy day.

  3. We decided not to shop on Black Friday, because it is a waste of time. We give out gift cards, now.

  5. P. S. I'm watching the PBS special on the pilgrims tonight. I read a good review of it, so I'm hoping it's informative and entertaining.

  6. I couldn't get the videos to play. Maybe I was too impatient waiting for them to buffer or what ever. Anyway, I wish for you a very happy Thanksgiving shared with those who love you and who you love.
