Hello Hornets! Hope you had a wonderful break! Behind all the fun is actually a very symbolic meaning. Thanksgiving is the expression of gratitude and thanks. However, a much deeper connection with America's lineage. When the pilgrims landed in Plymouth, they met many Native Indians that taught them the ways to survive in the wilderness. However, they asked for something in return. Using the Pilgrim's advanced weaponry and support, the Indian tribe completely devastated their enemies that rallied against them. thanksgiving was the feast that both parties had to commemorate their victoryand solidify their alliance.
