Mary: I’m cold!  And this basket is really heavy.

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!
