“they knew they were pilgrims”
– William Bradford, of Plymouth Plantation
Thanksgiving Day was approaching, and a family had received a Thanksgiving card with a painting of a pilgrim family on its way to church.
Grandma showed the card to her small grandchildren, observing, “The pilgrim children liked to go to church with their mothers and fathers.”
“Oh, yeah?” her grandson replied, “so why is their dad carrying that rifle?”
Q: What was the Pilgrims’ favorite dance?
A: The Plymouth Rock.
