Thanksgiving Day in the USA is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It was proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, to commemorate the “First Thanksgiving” in 1621, which was a feast to give thanks to the Native Americans, who helped the Pilgrims of the Plymouth Colony survive their first winter in New England. The first Thanksgiving feast went on for three days, and involved 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans.
I love the Thanksgiving feast when
The prayer has been said and we’ve blessed it,
And all that remains is to eat,
Then lie down and slowly digest it.
I love the turkey and stuffing
The cranberry sauce is yummy.
I love it how they make their way
Down into my tummy.
A Thanksgiving rhyme to help you remember
Which Thursday it is, in November.
Apart from in Canada to the north,
It always occurs on the fourth.
Thanksgiving’s been a tradition
It’s nice for everyone involved
Unless you are a turkey.
On Thanksgiving Day if you
Want to start a riot,
Go up to the cook and say
That you are on a diet.
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey 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!
To celebrate Thanksgiving
The real old fashioned way
You’ll need to do it differently
Than most folk do today.
Invite your friends and neighbours
To a thanksgiving meal
Of turkey, fish and venison,
Pumpkin, duck, and eel.
Then, a short while later,
Forget the friendship, and
Because it suits your purpose,
Kill them and take their land.
