I know that I have a lot to be thankful for this year. My wife is making our first Thanksgiving dish. What are you eating today?
Note: Thanksgiving was celebrated in Texas in 1541 by Spanish explorers, in South Carolina in 1564 by French Protestant settlers, and in Virginia in 1607 by the Jamestown settlers.
The first annual call for Thanksgiving was in Virginia in 1619 – three years before the Pilgrims celebrated Thanksgiving in Massachusetts in 1621. The Pilgrims weren’t associated with the Thanksgiving story until 1841.
