THE WOES OF A TURKEY

By Nancy Whitaker

I love Thanksgiving and everything about it. Being thankful to God for our blessings, a big turkey dinner and seeing family members is all a part of this special day.

We all know the stories about the first Thanksgiving and how the Pilgrims celebrated. In November, 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford wanted to have a feast, so he invited the colonists and their Native American allies, which included the Wampanoag chief, Massasoit.
