Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I'm sure this has something to do with my love of food, but it was always a big family holiday for us. I've read a little bit about the history of Christmas, but never really thought much about the history of Thanksgiving except what we all learned in kindergarten. So here are some links to get you started if you are as interested as I am.
Interesting from a living history standpoint for sure.
For those who would rather watch than read.
A children's book, but could be useful assuming it's accurate.
Gotta have a cookbook, and this one looks like a good one.
Who hasn't watched this parade at least once in their life?
Of course there are tons of kids books about Thanksgiving, and more books about freakin' Squanto than I care to count. This short list seems like a good starting point. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
PS - Found this today on the Internet. A story that refutes the traditional Thanksgiving narrative (sort of).
