Thanksgiving is a natural time to choose as Homecoming for the church or community center. The spirit of the Pilgrims was that of an overpowering thankfulness for the abundant harvest. They called tog.ether all the people of the village and even friendly Indians to celebrate with a banquet of venison, wild turkey, other game, vegetables, fruits, nuts, pies and puddings. Those who had much shared with the less fortunate, for they knew that the wonders of the harvest were not of man's making.
