Thanksgiving question
[Return to Topics]

The other day my daughter, she's eight, asked me what's Thanksgiving. I thought I knew, but having to think of an answer made me realise that I don't really know...because I can't remember what it's all about.

I told her it was a day when families and loved ones got together and ate a lot!!! I know this must be true from what I've read in previous threads here.

I might be on the wrong track but does the day go back to the pilgrims and the Mayflower or am I thinking of something completely different? For some reason I'm thinking of baskets full of produce...but maybe I'm thinking of something to do with harvests.

I'm sure someone here will give me a brief outline of what the day reperesents so I can tell her...and so I know!

If this post seems a bit loopy, don't mind me, it's been a long day and it's not even over yet.

PS: We obviously don't have Thanksgiving Day down here in Oz.
