The words to the music that is playing right now...

"Over the River and Through the Woods".


Over the river and through the woods
To Grandmother's house we go.
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through the white and drifted snow, O!
Over the river and through the woods
Oh, how the wind does blow.
It stings the nose
And bites the toes
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the woods
Trot fast my dapple gray.
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound
On this Thanksgiving Day, Hey!
Over the river and through the woods
Now Grandmother's face I spy.
Hurrah for the fun,
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie.

Pilgrim Interrupters (a child's view of history)

The Pilgrims were a bunch of English wanderers who wanted to worship as they wanted to. They escaped the Church of England and came over here because they heard that American churches were different. 

The May Flower was the ship in which they came. It didn't have a bathroom on board so there was quite an odor. Priscilla Mullins was the captain. 

First the Pilgrims had gone to Holland but left when their children started developing customs there. After a stopover at Williamsbug when a large storm blew them off course they landed on a big, slimey rock in Massatusetts. They spent the winter there. 

Before they got off the ship even they drew up an agreement for the people of Plymouth to agree on the voting for governors and congressmen. They kept this hid in the May Flower Compact. Lord Delaware was elected the first governor of Plymouth Rock. 

A friendly Indian named Rhone Oak showed the Pilgrims how to plant corn by putting it in the ground. Rhone Oak had been the first Indian to come to America and always wanted a beer. He traveled around with Miles Standy and translated language. He knew enough English to interrupt. 

Another interrupter for the white man was Squanto, who was called that because he was so short. Squanto drew up a declaration to give the settlers freedom of goverment in the new land. The Pilgrims gave the Indians thanks for all this and that's what started Thanksgiving. 

The Pilgrims then appointed Thanksgiving as a national holiday.
Abraham Lincoln later pronounced it and gave it to them and it soon became a national holiday all around the world. 

These people always wore old shoes with a big buckle on the top of them. The men wore pants that only came a little ways past the knees and the girls wore funny bonnets. 

But if these people wouldn't had of come to America the United States wouldn't be like it is today. 


What do you call a dumb gobbler?

A jerky turkey

Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

Twas the night before Thanksgiving and in my sleep.
Strange dreams in my mind, began to creep

Thanksgiving leftovers beckoned --- The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation......
The thought of a snack became infatuation.....

So to the kitchen I did race, Flung open the door,

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground!

I crashed through the ceiling. Floating into the sky....
With a mouthful l of pudding and a handful of pie,
But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees....


Why did the man invest in feathers?

      He heard the stock market was going down
