Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. Visit the Mayflower and See How the Original Feast Was Celebrated in 1621

Thanksgiving Day, which is celebrated this Thursday in the United States, is one of the most important annual holidays. Millions of Americans will get together with family and friends and share a big meal centered on a roast Turkey, and for dessert a delicious pumpkin pie --  a dish that puzzles most people outside of North America.  Macy's Department Store in New York City will hold a massive Parade with huge balloons and marching bands that will be televised nationally. More importantly, even for people who do not believe in a supreme being or religion at all, thanks will be given for all the bounty and blessings that have been given to you and your loved ones for the year.

Thanksgiving celebrates the first harvest feast that the Pilgrims held in 1621 to give thanks to God for their survival through the winter. This was all due to the help of the local Native American Wampanoag peoples, who donated food to them and joined them in a three-day celebration of about 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. Canada also celebrates Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October, which is a more authentic day for the holiday. Thanksgiving is a unique North American tradition, whichever date is used, that allows both nations to celebrate a common heritage.

These images are of Second Life's Mayflower, the ship that took the Pilgrims, English religious dissenters, across the Atlantic Ocean from Plymouth, England in 1620, and of Plymouth Colony, the settlement they built when they arrived in what is now Massachusetts in the United States. The Pilgrims  were in search of religious freedom, and did not want to conform to the forms of worship which were required of Christians in England under King James 1. The interior of the Mayflower gives an idea of how crowded and harrowing that first voyage in 1620 across the huge Atlantic Ocean for those 130 (the exact number is not known) passengers and crew members must have been.

An attractive and educational virtualization of The Mayflower and Plymouth village, site of the first Thanksgiving Feast in 1621, can be visited through early December.  Lora Chadbourne has created an authentic virtualization of each based on original research-- original illustrations and paintings of both were never made, or are no longer in existence.  This is a very impressive work that I highly recommend you visit.

The Mayflower and Plymouth village can be visited at the following location. My friend Sherrie Shepherd is hosting the builds on her home sim:

To all who celebrate the holiday, please have a wonderful time with your friends and family!
