Gather, Grateful Thanksgiving Printable

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies.  Today around the world there are at least 8 different celebrations of thanksgiving, a time to be grateful and celebrate what we have.  No, it’s not a time for a turkey and football in the other countries.  Each culture has its own traditions celebrating the harvest or bounty of Mother Nature.
