Gobble, Gobble

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the centuries-long celebration of the Autumn harvest.
The original Thanksgiving event occurred in 1621 when Plymouth colonists shared a feast with the Wampanoag Indians to celebrate the first successful corn harvest. While the celebration lasts for one day in modern times, it lasted for three days during the original festivity.

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving an official holiday, and it remains a celebrated event to this day.

What is your fondest memory of Thanksgiving?
