They Knew They Were Pilgrims

The 17th Century Adventures of Plimoth Plantation's Colonial Interpreters

Simple Gifts.

November 27th, 2013 by Alexandra

In 1621, at what we now call The First Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims wished to “after a special manner rejoice together” in order to celebrate the gathering of their first harvest and being “so far from want that we often wish you partakers of our plenty.” But sure, that was four hundred years ago – what are the Pilgrims of Plimoth Plantation thankful for today? (Hint: We like food. A lot.)┬áSo without further ado, here are today’s Pilgrims with all the heartwarming, silly, nonsensical and beautiful things they’re thankful for:

Oh, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you!
