10 Thanksgiving Celebrations Around the World

Nov 21, 2011  |   Contributor: The Daily Meal

The day of grace and gluttony we know as Thanksgiving is more than just the big meal before Black Friday. It has rather noble origins. When our pioneering forefathers arrived on American shores, they left the Mayflower in a tragic state. Throughout the winter at sea they suffered from exposure, scurvy, and outbreaks of contagious diseases. When only half of the original crew made it to the New World, an Abenaki Indian greeted them in their native tongue of English.

Epic North American Train Journeys

Aug 26, 2011  |   Contributor: Lena Katz
