Myths About Thanksgiving

November 19, 2020
“The Pilgrims are zealots, you used the correct word. We don’t like to discuss that because the Pilgrims give us warm and fuzzies, but the truth is they’re basically religious zealots. They idea we have is that the Pilgrims came here for religious freedom, not really so much, no. I mean they wanted to worship according to their own beliefs, that part is true, but they also came here to isolate themselves too. They wanted isolation from all other religious inputs”
 
Happy Thanksgiving!  Tour Guide Tell All is taking you back to the First Thanksgiving and discussing all things related to your favorite food-based holiday. We get into the reason for the season by discussing the Pilgrims, and why that is not a name that they would have recognized or even liked, the Mayflower and its difficult trans-Atlantic journey, and the Native Americans they encountered when they arrived.
 
Grab some Pumpkin pie and join us for a romp through America’s oldest holiday. Or is it???
