Thanksgiving started because the indians helped the pilgrims gather enough food and supplies for the winter, and they had a celebration/feast to give thanks for what they had.

Default Re: Thanksgiving

I don't even remember the specifics, been so damn long since I studied it.
All I know now, is it's a day to get fat off of food.
So much cooking happens here.. the temperature inside will be around 30F higher than it would be otherwise.
