The First Thanksgiving

Posted by Mr. Longmire on Nov 24, 2010 in A Total Waste of Time, Holidays and Events |

At Thanksgiving time, it’s easy to take everything for granted and forget the true meaning of the holiday. We should take the time to revisit the original Thanksgiving dinner that occurred 7,000 years ago on a cold July morning when Jesus and the Pilgrims came to America on the Nina, the Pinta, and the Mother Theresa. Picture yourself as one of the Pilgrims starting a new life in a brand new land full of half-dressed Indians sitting down to have fellowship with one another and giving Thanks for all your blessings and casino winnings. I can picture the first Thanksgiving turkey being brought to the table as Jesus made water from the corn the Indians brought and then made wine from the water that He made from the corn. The Three Wise Men arrived with gifts of gold, frankensence, and stuffing. And the Little Drummer Boy was there too, asking for the turkey leg, which is how the “drumstick” got its name. As evening came to pass on that first Thanksgiving Day, Abraham Lincoln cut down a cherry tree and used it in a bonfire for everyone to roast marshmallows around as young Thomas Edison and his band of pirates told holy ghost stories to the elves… just before everyone opened their Thanksgiving presents. Oh, what a magical day that must have been! So, as you enjoy Thanksgiving with your loved ones this year, remember that first historical dinner and be thankful with thanks. Thank you.
