May your stuffing be tasty, and your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious, and your pies take the prize.
AND may your Thanksgiving dinner
stay off your thighs!
Thanksgiving, what is it all about? A day of reflecting on what we are thankful for, family, friends, and good health to name a few. Family traditions of gathering around a huge feast or helping serve a dinner to the less fortunate. Maybe visiting someone alone at home, giving of yourself to others.
The first Thanksgiving was in 1621 when the Plymouth colonist and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast. The Wampanoag Indians gave thanks to their creator’s gifts daily but held ceremonies to give thanks for a successful harvest and for the hope of a good growing season in the early spring.
The arrival of the Pilgrims brought new traditions to America. Pilgrims gave thanks to God and celebrated His bounty with feasting and sport. It was always a joyous outpouring of gratitude with their strong Christian faith.
Today ‘s Thanksgiving may be different from the first Thanksgiving; however, one thing is still the same, thankfulness. At Griffin’s we are thankful for our wonderful customers and friends.
