HISTORY OF THANKSGIVING Telling the story of Thanksgiving makes a nice bedtime story
in addition to sharing it at a Thanksgiving day dinner.
The President's proclamation recommends that Thanksgiving be set apart as a day of prayer and rejoicing. The day is of New England origin, the first one being set by Governor Bradford of the Massachusetts colony on December, 1621. Washington issued a thanksgiving proclamation for Thursday, December 18, 1777, and again at Valley Forge for May 7, 1778. The Thanksgiving of the present incorporates many of the genial features of
Christmas. The feast with the Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin-pie
crowns the day. Even the poorhouse has its turkey.
As a tip, a table centerpiece is an elegant detail that adds color and life to a table. Use your creativity for fun, effective and stress-free planning. Don't forget to have all of your supplies the day before the event at the latest. Avoid day-of-event shopping.
