How many days are you going to be celebrating Thanksgiving? One? Two? Three? Typically our country's Thanksgiving meal happens on one day. The leftovers may last longer but the actual day of giving thanks is only one.
For the Pilgrims and Indians, the feasting lasted 3 days! One was not enough. My friend says fish and company smell after about 3 days. Maybe that's why they stopped feasting at day three.
Hence, the third stanza in our Thanksgiving song celebrates 3 days of feasting. Here's the song with all three stanzas, thus far: "On the third day of Thanksgiving, we recount gratefully three days feasting, two Indians, and a Mayflower on the sea."
Hang on tight, we've got 8 more days to finish learning our new Thanksgiving song.
