#tbt: The First Thanksgiving

Although we’re quite sure it happened a little differently than this (and many would say this was the tragic beginning of the end of the Native American culture), for us this image conjures up memories of elementary school history classes and the lessons we learned of sharing and acceptance. Those lessons were important back then, and they remain important today.

They also serve as a good reminder that we always should keep our minds and hearts open to everyone, no matter who they are and no matter where they come from. Inside we’re all the same–people who want to gather around a table, sharing stories and memories and the good, comforting company of our loved ones, the people we hold near and dear to our hearts, and the people we call our family (no bloodlines necessary).


So no matter what your Thanksgiving plans are or who you share them with, we wish you a day filled with love, merriment, memory making, and of course, copious amounts of food, drink, and laughter. (And if you’d like large inflatables to be part of your Turkey Day, don’t forget to watch the 90th Anniversary of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!)

Gobble gobble,

Your friends at The Nostalgia Diaries
