Linus van Pelt: In the year 1621, the Pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving feast. They invited the great Indian chief Massasoit, who brought ninety of his brave Indians and a great abundance of food. Governor William Bradford and Captain Miles Standish were honored guests. Elder William Brewster, who was a minister, said a prayer that went something like this: “We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world for freedom and justice.”
Patricia ‘Peppermint Patty’ Reichardt: Amen.
Sally Brown: Do you know what we have to do? We have to write an essay on Stanley Miles.
Charlie Brown: You mean Miles Standish.
Sally Brown: I can’t keep track of all those names.
I do not know if A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving was ever published as an old book (as Charlie Brown’s Christmas was, stay tuned) but as I am scheduling this to go live at 11:59pm, Wednesday November 23, it falls within the bounds of Off Topic Wednesday.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Now go read some William Bradford.
