Long ago, we came to a new, strange world that made little sense to us.  We struggled to grow corps in the alien soil, but they failed.  But we made friends with the natives, and they helped us.  We worked together, growing new food and hunting the local animals.  In the end, we all celebrated together, thanking God for the friendships that helped us gather the food we needed to survive the coming winter.  That is the essence of the holiday we call Thanksgiving.
