Dear Key Communicators,
I am wishing you the very best on this Thanksgiving holiday. May you be with family and friends, may you eat well and smile a lot, and may the Dallas Cowboys lose miserably.
The “first Thanksgiving,” was neither a feast nor a holiday, but a simple gathering. Following the Mayflower’s arrival at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620, the Pilgrims - the first immigrants in what is now the United States - suffered the loss of 46 of their original 102 colonists. With the help of 91 Native Americans, the remaining Pilgrims survived the bitter winter and yielded a bountiful harvest in 1621. In celebration, a traditional harvest festival, lasting three days brought the Pilgrims and Native Americans to unite in a “thanksgiving” observance.
