Do you know about other holidays too?

I was telling Master the story of why we celebrate Thanksgiving.  And yes, I realize that the "story" we learned about in grade school isn't exactly how it went down, but he's 4.

Here's a quick preschool friendly story about Thanksgiving:  A long time ago (before anyone you know was even born) in England there were a group of people called the Pilgrims.  There was also a mean king.  He told everyone that they needed to do things his way and no other way.   This made the Pilgrims sad.  So they  all got into a boat and sailed all the way across the ocean to America.  When they got there it was really cold and they were sick and hungry.  Then they met some people that already lived there, the Native Americans.  The Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to grow food and find food.  When all the food was done growing the Pilgrims had so much food they decided to have a party to celebrate.  Because the Native Americans helped them, the Pilgrims invited them to the party.

So I told Master this story and then we went over it together so he could remember it.  He informed me that The State-ive Americans helped the Pilgrims.

So close, buddy. So close
