Episode Summary

EDIT
History of Thanksgiving: Home for the Holidays
AIRED:
We all think we know the history of America's holidays, especially Thanksgiving. The story goes that after a horrible winter, a small group of Massachusetts Pilgrims were so thankful to be alive, they threw a feast for themselves and their Native-American neighbors. That's true, but Thanksgiving didn't become a national holiday until Abraham Lincoln declared the first one in 1863. These days, we celebrate Thanksgiving with feasting, family and football. How did we get from Plymouth Rock to a day we stop to cherish all that it means to be home?moreless
