Lesson Learned: Thanksgiving Special Edition

Did you know Sarah Josepha Hale, author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” led the crusade for a national day of thanks?

In the spirit of learning and sharing, here’s a video portfolio on the “History of Thanksgiving” produced by the History Channel. There are 17 videos in total (each only 3-4 minutes), covering everything from food to football and pilgrims to parades. Enjoy!

Some of my favorites are:

History of Thanksgiving

Pilgrims in America

Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving Becomes a Holiday

Thanksgiving Day Parade Tech
