Think you have it rough imagine feeding 140 people for 3 days!
The first thanksgiving was comprised of the surviving 50 Pilgrims and 90 Wampanoag Indians.
This was definitely an endeavor because there were only 5 surviving women. Just imagine the
amount of food that would involve and cooking trying to keep that many men well-fed for three
Just remember that despite its crazy history and some of it’s strange traditions, Thanksgiving is all
about family and being thankful. After all when the pilgrims celebrated Thanksgiving they were just
happy to be alive (over half of them died before the first Thanksgiving) and most of us have much
more than that to be thankful for this year.
