Thanksgivingby Katherine Moser on 11/25/16
Some of our students wanted to share their thoughts on Thanksgiving with you. We hope you enjoy!
Thanksgiving is a time of gathering as a family and catching up with each other. Many families, like mine, talk, eat, and watch football. That is just our thing to do. We socialize and play games with each other. For example, my sister once got me a game, and the whole family played it for an hour because it was so entertaining to all of us. Thanksgiving was started because the Pilgrims thanked God for helping them survive in a new land and thrive through the help of the Indians. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and celebrate as a family, but, sadly, today people are fading away from this tradition. We, as Americans, need to step up and bring it back. We need to have a giant buffet and eat until we are stuffed- all of us as one family. Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what we have. We have freedom, which many other countries do not have. We must keep this freedom alive by being thankful for it.

There is a holiday coming up- Thanksgiving! In 1621, the Wampanoag tribe helped the Pilgrims so that none of them would starve. In that same year, the Pilgrims asked the helpful Indians over for a feast to give thanks to God. The point of Thanksgiving is to be thankful for what you have and to give thanks to God for blessing you.
