This year, the kids and I watched a cute but surprisingly fact-filled short cartoon of the Pilgrims’ journey to the new land of America and how the holiday of Thanksgiving came about. In this episode of the series, “This Is America,” Charlie Brown and his friends play the characters of the Pilgrims and show how things might have felt like through the long trip on the Mayflower and the first harsh winter. The 30-minute show kept our attention and even I learned new things about the Pilgrims’ new life I never knew before. Though they sacrificed so much, there was one thing they never lost – their faith in God. Be sure to watch this Thanksgiving favorite that’s sure to be a win for the whole family!
