Several years ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to take a three day "American History" tour for college credit through Massachusetts. That kindled a deep respect and ongoing appreciation for the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620.
Since then, Thanksgiving has become my favorite national holiday. No surprise there! I love to eat, gather with family, nap through football games and watch advertisers attempt to commercialize a holiday meant to focus on giving thanks, not acquiring more. And I always love to review the history of the Pilgrims and Plymouth Plantation.
