Read the story about Thanksgiving
Long ago, people called Pilgrims, left their houses in England and crossed the ocean on a ship called Mayflower.
It’s the year 1620 when the Pilgrims come to America. They are cold and hungry.
Native Americans give them food and clothes and help the Pilgrims to build their houses and plant the seeds of corn that they bring and to grow the corn and to hunt the animals.
In autumn corn is mature and the Pilgrims harvest it.
At the end they make a big party to celebrate and to thank the Indians for their help.
Every year, people in the USA have a Thanksgiving Day.
It’s on the fourth Thursday in November.
On that day people eat turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
