Over three hundred years have elapsed since the first Thanksgiving was held here in our United States. Early that bright cold morning our Pilgrim fathers arose and went to worship and gave thanks to God for His many blessings. The privations, loneliness and hardships of that day are hard to imagine now with our modern conveniences. Perhaps sometimes we forget how much Thanksgiving day really meant to our Pilgrim forefathers. We remember instead the bountiful meal they prepared for their Indian friends and themselves. We must not forget the real meaning of Thanksgiving day, but naturally homemakers today are all interested in that first Thanksgiving meal.
