Learn How To Decorate Your Home For A Festive Fall Season

We have all been taught the story of the first Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims came over on the Mayflower to find freedom from religious persecution. They were met by the Indians (Native Americans) who were less than thrilled to see the newcomers invading their land. After much negotiation and some give and take, they finally came to an agreement to share the land.

After they came to an understanding, they wanted to commemorate the occasion by thanking God for their good fortune, so they decided to have a feast with foods that both the Indians and the Pilgrims considered native to their culture. There was corn, turkey, chicken, and a variety of vegetables.

The true story of Thanksgiving isn’t as important as why we celebrate this holiday. Over the years, it has become a special time of the year for many cultures. We usually decorate our homes for the holiday, and Thanksgiving is no different a time.

That is why Thanksgiving crafts are very popular not only in our schools, but for many creative people who like to make hand made decorations for the home.

There are many myths surrounding Thanksgiving. Here are nine things we do know are true about the holiday.

  • The first Thanksgiving was a harvest celebration in 1621 that lasted for three days.
  • The feast most likely occurred between Sept. 21 and Nov. 11.
  • Approximately 90 Wampanoag Indians and 52 colonists – the latter mostly women and children – participated.
  • The Wampanoag, led by Chief Massasoit, contributed at least five deer to the feast.
  • Cranberry sauce, potatoes – white or sweet – and pies were not on the menu.
  • The Pilgrims and Wampanoag communicated through Squanto, a member of the Patuxet tribe, who knew English because he had associated with earlier explorers.
  • Besides meals, the event included recreation and entertainment.
  • There are only two surviving descriptions of the first Thanksgiving. One is in a letter by colonist Edward Winslow. He mentions some of the food and activities. The second description was in a book written by William Bradford 20 years afterward. His account was lost for almost 100 years.
  • Abraham Lincoln named Thanksgiving an annual holiday in 1863.
