PostSubject: Thanksgiving!   Tue Nov 23, 2010 9:56 pm

Interesting info from American Hunter mag. Nov 2010 issue, pages 16-17

Some exerpts from "The Real History of Thanksgiving", by Frank Miniter...
In 1863, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be observed every year on the fourth Thursday of November...
The Pilgrims' thanksgiving feast of 1621 is referred to as the original meal that began the holiday of thanks...
what has been lost in time is that the Pilgrims were in peril in part because they'd tried communal farming. During their first 2 1/2 years, the Pilgrims at Plymouth Plantation didn't own private property. Food was grown by the townspeople and distributed equally. Communism ruled. Naturally, some residents began sleeping in, sure someone else would till the field...By 1623, the leaders tried the American path to prosperity. they allotted private property to each family and declared that if residents didn't work, they wouldn't eat. Productivity immediately increased.

WOW! So this Thanksgiving, I am thankful to God for this country, my family and friends, health and home...
as well as what the Pilgrims learned to be thankful for... property, food and a job! cheers

I thought John Wayne invented Thanksgiving? He DID invent Pilgrims, right??! Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good night. (or is that a line from someone elses invention?)
