La fête de Thanksgiving, célébrée le quatrième jeudi de novembre aux Etats-Unis, et le deuxième lundi d´octobre au Canada (pour les raisons climatiques que vous connaissez) est l’une des fêtes les plus importantes du calendrier américain. 

 

Thanksgiving signifie "Action de grâce". Grâce rendu à Dieu pour la récolte abondante d´où sa célébration en automne.

s´installant à Plymouth, ce qui signifie village

d´Accomack, moururent en grand nombre pour diverses raisons mais l´une d´elles serait la pénurie de nourriture.

 

Les  Wampanoag d´Amérique, indiens de Plymouth, aidèrent les nouveaux colons en leur apprenant la pêche, la chasse et la culture du maïs, ce qui a permis aux premiers colons de survivre.

Pilgrim, Pilgrim
(by M. Hubbard)

Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see the king refusing my plea.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see the Mayflower ready for sea.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see a new land to set me free.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see a hard winter, tough as can be.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see? 
I see a green bud on a spring tree.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see an Indian helping me.
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see corn growing 1, 2, 3!
Pilgrim, Pilgrim, what do you see?
I see praise, for thankful are we!

Les enfants ont écouté attentivement l´histoire des colons du Mayflower, puis ont fabriqué leur coiffe.

Merci à tous les parents des bons mets au thème de Thanksgiving.

The children listened closely the History of the Pilgrims came on the Mayflower, then they made their own caul.

Thank you dear parents for the delicious Thanksgiving dishes.
