    HEY! It's that time of year again! Yes, it's Thanksgiving time, but it's also time for our Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirts! Head on over to Amazon to check out this year's line up of Presidential attire for the Holiday season. You can even get Prime shipping!


    Did you know that Pilgrims probably weren't the first people to celebrate Thanksgiving? And they definitely didn't celebrate it in the way we know now. 

    In this episode we talk about...

    • the reason the Pilgrims came to America,
    • how multiple groups celebrated a day of Thanksgiving,
    • George Washington's day(s) of Thanksgiving,
    • Sarah Hale, Abe Lincoln and Edward Winslow,
    • and much more!
