George: Give it to me.


(Mary gives the basket to her brother George)


Mary: Mom and Dad are going to be happy because of all the things we could get.


George: Look!  There’s mom and dad!


(Mary runs to meet her parents.  Her father is carrying a package)


Mary: Mom!  Dad!  Look at all the things we have!


(Mary’s mother looks at the basket)


Mother: Oh… your basket is full!


George: (to his father) What do you have in that package?


Father: It’s the bread.


Mother: Let’s hurry up they are waiting for us.


Father: We can’t be late for the feast.


Mary and George: Yes, father.


(They start to walk.  They arrive to the village of Plymouth.  There is a long table with food on it.  Some pilgrims are placing plates and glasses on the table).


Mary: Oh, there’s a lot of food on the table!


George: Everything looks delicious!


Mary: What are we celebrating, mother?


Mother: Today is a special day.


Mary: Why?


Mother: Because today we give thanks to God for being so good to us.


Father: Today is Thanksgiving Day.


George: And at what time is the feast?


Father: As soon as everyone is here.


Mother: Now, both of you go and put the basket on the table.


Father: I’ll put the bread.


(They place the basket and the bread on the table).


Mary: Everything looks so nice!


Mother: Mary, go and pick up some flowers to put on the table.


(Mary turns around and she sees some indians approaching)


Mary: Mom… dad… who are those people?


(Mary’s parents and George turn around)


Father: They are our friends.


Mary: But they are Indians!


Mother: Yes, sweety, they have been living in this land for many years before we came. They taught us to grow corn and different plants for food.


Father: They also taught us how to hunt and fish… and how to survive in this New World.


George: What are they wearing?


Father: They make their clothing out of animal skins.


Mary: I like their colorful beads!


George: Look!  More Indians are coming!


(Squanto approaches them.  He is carrying a big turkey)


Squanto: Friends, we brought the food for the feast.


George: That bird smells delicious!


Mother: Come and join us, it’s time to eat.


(Squanto places the turkey on the table.  All the pilgrims and indians sit around the table.)


Father: Heavenly Father, bless this food You have provided and bless each and every person here.


Mother: We are thankful for our family and for our health.


Father: And most of all, that this day has brought all of us together to celebrate Thanksgiving.


Everybody: Amen!
