Thanksgiving is tomorrow but do you actually know the reason we celebrate the holiday? If you don't know the history, let my 3-year-old cousin Seraphina explain it for you.

The "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated in the early 1600s by the Pilgrims and Native Americans. The Pilgrims left their native lands when they were allowed religious freedom. They hopped on the Mayflower to find a world where they could practice without prosecution from the queen. They ended up landing in Plymouth, Massachusetts and met the Native Americans. That's the story that we're taught in school anyway.

My 3-year-old cousin learned that same story at her Thanksgiving feast in her nursery school. I asked her a few hours later to see what she remembered and what meant the most to her. Somehow, we ended up talking about pirates and, according to her, the cops showed up in the middle of her interview...? Listen, you'll see what I mean.
