THANKSGIVING


Thanksgiving is a special festival for Americans, it is a family holiday: families always have big dinners and happy reunions. On this day American people thank God for what they have.


In Autumn, Thanksgiving is always celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.

The first Thanksgiving day dates back to 1621. The Pilgrim Fathers had previously left Britain due to religious persecutions. When they arrived in North America, they weren’t ready to cope with the harsh conditions of the cold winter. The Native Americans helped, giving them food. Indians and Pilgrim Fathers celebrated the first Thanksgivings together: these were harvest festivals, occasions for thanking God for plentiful crops (the cornucopia is one of the symbols of Thanksgiving, it suggests abundance).

POULTRY: turkey, goose, duck, partridge, chicken; OTHER MEAT: deer 
FRUIT: raspberries, strawberries, grapes, plums, cherries, blueberries and cranberry sauce
VEGETABLES: peas, pumpkin (pumpkin pie), beans, onions, carrots and corn on the cob
FISH: such as clams, lobster, mussels, cod, sea-bass, herring and eel.
An assortment of NUTS like walnuts and chestnuts. Delicious Thanksgiving food!!!

Don't let the water run!

This is a song about conserving water while brushing your teeth. 



Oh, I'm brushing my teeth on top
It's so much fun, I hate to stop
But while I'm brushing my teeth and having so much fun
I never let the water run, no I never let the water run
Oh, I'm brushing my teeth on the bottom
'Cause I wouldn't wanna say that I forgot em'
But while I'm brushing my teeth and having so much fun
I never let the water run, no, I never let the water run
Oh, I'm brushing my teeth in back
Gotta get rid of all the plaque
But while I'm brushing my teeth and having so much fun
I never let the water run, no, I never let the water run
I never let the water run, no, I never let the water run
Oh, I'm brushing my teeth all around
'Cause I like to hear the squishing sound
But while I'm brushing my teeth and having so much
I never let the water run, no, never let the water run

SONG: Paradise (Coldplay)






When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep and dreamed of
Para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes
When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach and the bullets catch in her teeth
