Cuz John Smith Says So!

I decided to get a little different perspective on Thanksgiving and sat down with my six-year old son last night and had a short Q&A with him about his thoughts about this day. Enjoy!

What do you think Thanksgiving is?
A time to say thanks and share life. A time of learning about the first Thanksgiving and a time to remember about those Pilgrims.

What is a Pilgrim?
An ancestor which not most of us really have.

Why are they called Pilgrims?
The call them Pilgrims because I think there was a law in England that said if you’re a grown up or a child you have to be called a Pilgrim.

What happened on the first Thanksgiving?
The Indians taught them how to plant fish and they sang great songs.

If I were a Pilgrim I would…
Help the Indians cuz John Smith said, “if you don’t work, you don’t eat!”

Who is John Smith?
He is the leader that got tied up on the boat because the Pilgrims wouldn’t listen to him, so they stopped and listened to him.

What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving?
I get to eat turkey and some other sweet things.

What are you thankful for?
For being in a family and that I have grandparents. I have 3000 hundred things I am thankful for and that’s the end people!

Happy Thanksgiving!  Live Healthy!  Be Thankful!
