Many years ago some people wanted to go away from England. They had problems in England. They had a different belief. They could not stay in England. They left England in 1606. They went to Holland. They lived there for 12 years. But they were not happy there. They wanted to go to America. In September 1620 the people started to go to America. They had a big ship. There were 102 people on this ship. After 63 days they saw land. In December 1620 they were in America. They built a village there. They met Indians.

The first winter was very hard for the English people. A lot of them died. The next year the Indians helped them and the year was very good. The English people and the Indians had a party together. This party was full of food.

Now Americans have this party every year too. The name is Thanksgiving. They drink and eat and speak together. It is always in November.
