Day when people say thank you - level 2, A11
Many years ago some people in England had a different belief. They could not stay in England and had to leave. In 1606 they went to Holland where they lived for 12 years. But they were also not happy there. They decided to go to America. In September 1620 they started their journey on a ship. There were 102 people on the ship. After 63 days at sea they saw land. It was December 1620 and they were in America. They started building a village. There were Indians near the village. They were friendly.
The first winter was very hard for the new people and a lot of them died. The next year the Indians helped them and the situation was very good. The English people and the Indians had a party together with a lot of food. They had a party for three days.
Now Americans have this party every year too. The name is Thanksgiving. They drink and eat and speak together. It is always in November.
