Mayor Gia's First Thanksgiving

It’s not exactly a Bible story, but I'm retelling the story of the First Thanksgiving. Enjoy! [Also, linking up with yeahwrite!]

In 16somethingsomething, a bunch of Pilgrims came to America.


Yay, religious tolerance! How nice!




They brought supplies with them to get through the first winter in America.






They were in trouble.  But then the pilgrims met the natives.





The pilgrims didn’t really understand the native people or their ways.






The pilgrims were also kind of jerks.



Things started to look pretty bleak for the pilgrims. Until...




The native americans shared their harvest, and the pilgrims survived.


 And they were super grateful. For a solid five minutes.




Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Is there such a thing as "Indigenous People Face"? Because if so, I think some tribes will be protesting "She Who Hugs A Lot."

  2. Happy Thanksgiving. You had better keep an eye on "Tall White Man" Did you know that over 50 percent of the pilgrims had premarital sex and that the more than 30 percent of the the babies were conceived out of wedlock? I only mention this as "Tall White Man" is probably really horny and there is NO birth control invented yet.

  18. That was hyper hilarious! The character of Girl Who Hugs A Lot was based on you, wasn't she?

  19. That was quite creative! One of your best posts by far! It's even historically accurate!! ;)

    Loved it! :D

    P.S. Btw, this is Alejandra, from Musings in Red. I've split my old blog into two: an inspirational blog, "Parasol Dreams", and a book review blog that is just in the makings now! :)

    And the reason I'm boring you with all this information is that I'm just letting all the blogs I follow know about my new blog name so that they don't think I've abandoned them. Or that I died. Or some other tragical thing like that. :)
