    them, I don 't think retail stores should be open on Thanksgiving, because people are supposed to be thankful for what they have on Thanksgiving and then they go shopping and buy whatever they can afford.

    Thanksgiving Myths Did the first official thanksgiving take place near Plymouth Rock in 1621? This is the myth that I chose for this paragraph. Well, I think the English colonists we call Pilgrims celebrated days of thanksgiving as parts of their religion, but these were days of prayer, not days of feasting.
