A Blessed Thanksgiving

There's a theory that the original Thanksgiving celebration, and the holiday itself, is modeled on the Jewish Festival of Sukkoth (Tabernacles). The idea is that they're both harvest festivals that take place in the Fall, and that the Pilgrims, as religious folks, would have looked to the Bible for inspiration.

The reality is that it's highly unlikely to be true, but it's always fun to speculate on these kinds of connections.

A joyous and blessed Thanksgiving to all lour readers!
