Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
In the USA we celebrate Thanksgiving with huge feasts to honor the friendship between the Wampanoags and The Pilgrims!
American football, overeating, and the beginning of our holiday shopping season are also important parts of our holiday festivities
Most important though is to give thanks for all the many blessings we have!
I am thankful for many things this year! One of the things I am most thankful for is art and having so many wonderful art blogging buddies!
Thank you everyone!
(I posted these photos before. Seem to be appropriate every Thanksgiving!)

I was very fortunate to play high school football for East Boston High School! On Thanksgiving we would always play a huge game agains our biggest rival, South Boston High! In all my four years of high school we never beat them!
(EBHS players are in the Blue and Gold colors!)

Massasoit and other Native Americans helped Pilgrims make it through their first very harsh winter in the New World. Together they celebrated First Thanksgiving!
