Hooray for Turkey Day!

This year Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November, 22nd, 2012.

President Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.

Thanksgiving is ALWAYS on the 4th Thursday of November.  

It's a time for people thankful for the good things in their lives.

Many people eat food traditional like turkey and pumpkin pie.

But, who started all this?

What were they thankful for?

Did they really eat pumpkin pie and turkey too?

Mrs. Cupples does not control all the "turkeys" on the Internet. She works hard to make sure all the links in her blog work and lead to good safe places, but the Internet can be filled with all kinds of "gobbly"-gook.
Please always tell your parents when you go "hunting" on the Internet.  Never give anyone your name or any other personal info without your parent's permission!
