Thanksgiving Traditions Across the Country (page 2)
Thanksgiving at Plimoth
The first Thanksgiving was in 1621, today the same site is home to the Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts. Thousands of people make the “pilgrimage” to the Plimouth Plantation because it is a model English village and has a Wampanoag Home site! Plus, guests can see the Mayflower II, Plimoth Plantation’s full-scale reproduction.
Thanksgiving is a big event at Plimoth. Some guests feast at the Harvest dinner with the Pilgrims. This historically accurate but still delicious meal is quite an experience. Tables are set with pewter and woodenware, and strewn with fresh herbs. The pilgrim hosts spice up dinner with tales of England. During dinner guests are entertained with psalms and songs from the period.
