Since 1863 when Abe Lincoln, during the Civil War, proclaimed Thanksgiving a National Day, American friends and families have been gathering in celebration. Tribute is often paid to the earlier settlers’ “First Thanksgiving” held after their first harvest in the New World in 1621. This feast lasted three days, and was attended by about 53 Pilgrims and 90 American Indians. Its time to decorate in anticipation of your gathering of friends and loved ones. Pile a bunch of gourds around a Thanksgiving ornament in your entryway. Put out a few decorations or throw pillows and decorate the Fall table. And don’t forget to add a warm welcome at the street!
These are beautifully detailed Autumn Harvest Thanksgiving Pilgrim Figures. The bottom of each figure is slightly hollowed out and features a collection of fall pumpkins, grapes, corn, apples and gourds. They would look lovely on any mantle or in a table centerpiece.
