Thanksgiving

By Rohini Khapre - Ghawalkar - November 23, 2015

Thankgiving is a special holiday that is celebrated in November. Thanksgiving was a holiday that the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag made. The Pilgrims lived in Europe and the king of Europe made the Pilgrims do what he wanted. The Pilgrims didn't  want to listen to the king so they set sail to another land in a boat called the Mayflower. In the new land  they met the Wampanoag people. The Wampanoags had problems before with Europen people so they didn't trust the Pilgrims.The Pilgrims  wanted the land but the Wamponaogs wouldn't let them. The Pilgrims forced some of the Wampanoags into slavery and sent the others to Europe in England. Squanto was one of the people that was sent to England. After he returned some of his people died. Squanto showed the Pilgrims how to plant food even if they were mean to him. Thats when the first Thanksgiving feast happend. Now when its Thanksgiving you give thnks to the things you have and why. My thanks are for my teacher and my mom and dad because some kids don'thave any of them. Then I'm thankful for my home and food.Kids don't have those also. Lastly I'm thankful for my family who love me very much.
