Happy Thanksgiving, Truthseekers!

Before you and your family zone out on tryptophan and ESPN and slap on the running shoes for the midnight Black Friday sales, take a moment to be thankful for the little things that make you happy. I've asked our five-year-old Molly about Thanksgiving and here are her answers...

Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?

Molly: "Because it's fun! You get to eat lots of different things!"

Okay, what happened in the past that is the reason we celebrate today, what was the first Thanksgiving?

Molly: "Oh, the first Thanksgiving lasted three days and three nights . . . (reciting from the school play) . . . The Natives helped the Pilgrims grow crops and taught them how to plant corn using three dead fish. The Pilgrims ate many foods at their first feast. They ate fish, deer, turkeys, lobsters, corn, squash, strawberries and grapes . . . many pilgrims died that year, they sailed on a ship called the Mayflower . . . there were 102 people on the ship in 1620 . . . the Pilgrims finally landed in America and they called their new home Plymouth."

Molly: "I don't know . . . a person? A hungry person who wants to have a better life on Plymouth Rock?"

What is a Native American?

Molly: "A naked person. They hunt bare-footed and wear feathers to show who is strong. The men and boys wrestle and play games and the women cook the food."

What is your favorite thing to do on Thanksgiving?

Molly: "Eat turkey and corn. Wait for Christmas."

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Molly: "I like the chocolate teepees you make. And corn."

What do you not like to eat on Thanksgiving?

Molly: "I hope there's not going to be any onions, with that red stuff on them. I don't want any of that!"
