    Okay, I have a major bone to pick with you (pun intended). While the historical accounts only say that the Plymouth Rock pilgrims “went fowling,” the first thanksgiving almost certainly included turkey. Wild turkeys were extremely prolific in the area, and a mainstay game bird of the local Indians.

    If you want to copy the original thanksgiving, then you have to include sea food. So pop open a can of sardines – and tell everyone to stand downwind, because it’s going to be brutal.

    Sorry. I’m just kidding around. Your article hit the nail right on the head.

      I don’t know about sardines, but they did have oysters. Now, there is something I’ve never even wanted to try. :)

      At any rate, maybe now I won’t get any more emails about Thanksgiving.

    Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that turkey as a main dish is good for most occasions (well, probably not the Day of Atonement).
