Here are some interesting Thanksgiving facts I found on various websites:
- The first Thanksgiving Day in America was on December 4, 1619. At that time, it was a fully religious thing. A group of 38 English settlers arrived at Berkeley Plantation on December 4, 1619 and their charter required that the day of their arrival be observed yearly as a day of thanksgiving to God.
- The first Thanksgiving Day with the American Indians was celebrated in Plymouth in 1621 by the Pilgrims together with 91 Indians. The Pilgrims first set foot at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620. The first winter in Massachusetts was really bad and 46 out of the original 102 Pilgrims died. It is believed that the Indians helped the Pilgrims through that difficult period and without them, the Pilgrims would not have survived.
- Draw with a very light touch - so light that when you erase, you can't see a mark. (test out a light touch before you begin drawing, by making a pencil mark and then try and erase)
- The red lines are the part of the new drawing.
- The dashes are what should be erased.
- Place paper horizontal. (Note horizontal is often used for peaceful scenes - hence, landscape; vertical is used for portraits)
