Roast turkey, candied yams, giant balloons and American football. As a brit looking in two what basically means you have two christmas days, turkey again anyone. I just wanted to put a very short email together about our american branch of this rapidly growing tree and a little audio recording in the process.
Kinda feel i should know this piece of history but with so much new knowledge my brain pushes a lot out to allow for the new. legacy and history are important and we must not forget to continue to write paths to be consigned to the history books when massives challenges were set and we adapted together.
i'm blessed and touched at the level of empathy and compassion that both dayle and william have shown us over here in our respective homes in england, scotland and ireland as we come together in ten days time, virtual adopted family to help others and to have a christmas week together. i'm so blessed to know each one of you and so may our union as a collective continue.
Thanksgiving Day can be traced back to the 1621 celebration at the Plymouth Plantation, where the religious refugees from England known popularly as the Pilgrims invited the local Native Americans to a harvest feast after a particularly successful growing season. The previous year's harvests had failed and in the winter of 1620 half of the pilgrims had starved to death.
