Thanksgiving Trivia Do You Know The Answers???

Good morning and happy Thanksgiving day.    Most are off to Thanksgiving day football games or off to the relatives to have a terrific dinner.     I am writing a post this morning to stay true to the 30 blogging challenge that I agree to.   So far, so good.  

I think that a fun post is in order this morning, so what about some fun facts that we can take to the Thanksgiving day table?   Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday.   I love thinking and reading about the beginnings of this nation and how we did, and then didn't, get along with the native folks.        

Anyone that  knows me, knows that I am obsessed with King Philip or the Indian Chief Metacom and the King Philip Indian Wars that plagued the colonies in 1675.   I paddle the Charles River and feel his presence as I pass by the overlook and all that our history and nature has to offer.      I have had many a discussion with my sister as to why I think he was a very cool guy, but that is for another day/debate.  Debate that is, but...

Today is for fun, so how about a little Thanksgiving related trivia?

Being from Massachusetts, we think we have learned it all.  But have we???   

1.   What is credited as the Pilgrims first landing place and where is the rock?   

2.   What was the name of the ship the Pilgrims came over on?    

3.   Who was the captain of the ship?   (be careful,trick question)   

4.   In 1621, How long did the First Thanksgiving last?     

5.   What was the name of the Indian Chief that had dinner with the Pilgrims?     

6.   What's another name for the "horn of plenty"? 

7.   Can you eat "indian corn"?  

8.   How many days did it take the pilgrims to get from England to Plymouth?    

9.   Can turkeys drown if they look up in the rain?

Hi Carol Ann and Happy Thanksgiving...

The history of Thanksgiving is often confusing and full of myth, but it's a lot of fun. Just like the day!

Hi Richard.    Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.   I thought I might as well go armed to dinner with some fun trivia as I am sure at some point the talk will turn to, yes, politics.   :)

I got a couple right Carol Ann lol...i said CPT Hook as the Captain of the ship...guess that wasn't right.  I always thought that Turkeys could drown lol :)!

I learned some things about Thanksgiving on the history channel the other night and it was very interesting.  Great post!
