Subject: RE: BS: Thanksgiving historical corrections (USA)
The second best way to find out about Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving is to go here: http://www.plimoth.org/ . The best way is really to go there: to Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA. Well, okay, it is a reconstruction and not where the original settlement was because by the time it was reconstructed there were shops, homes, etc., in the area of the original settlement.

Where I live, there are many Italian-American families. Many of them serve both turkey and lasagna on Thanksgiving. In my French-Canadian-American family, the turkey stuffing was the recipe as the one used make meat pie filling. This year since son and daughter-in-law are visiting relatives on the other side of the family, I'm spending Thanksgiving Day at Mystic Seaport where I will listen to whatever chantey singer is working that day and dine at their Latitude 41 restaurant. Sadly, no lobster dishes are on the special menu for that day.
