Today comes to Thursday, Thanksgiving Day 2009. The day brings us fun games to play, cool crafts to create, pretty parties to celebrate, delicious dinners to enjoy and great parades to participate. All such amazing activities are worth a special story to record in popular PowerPoint or video. Thanks to Internet and multimedia software like PowerPoint and PPT2Video, we can share our stories of Thanksgiving without boundary.
Before making a story video of thanks, let’s track back to some fun facts of Thanksgiving.
The most familiar story of the first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621. More than 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941.
Sarah Josepha Hale, the enormously influential magazine editor and author who waged a tireless campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday in the mid-19th century, was also the author of the classic nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
Myth 1: The first Thanksgiving was in 1621 and the pilgrims celebrated it every year thereafter.
Myth 2: The original Thanksgiving feast took place on the fourth Thursday of November.
Myth 3: The pilgrims wore only black and white clothing. They had buckles on their hats, garments, and shoes.
Myth 4: The pilgrims brought furniture with them on the Mayflower.
Myth 5: The Mayflower was headed for Virginia, but due to a navigational mistake it ended up in Cape Cod Massachusetts.
