Guest: Bruce Forbes, Retired Chair of the Philosophy and Religious Studies Department, Morningside College, Author of "America's Favorite Holidays" The story goes that the first Thanksgiving happened in November of 1621 when the Pilgrims celebrated their first harvest in the New World and invited some of their Native American friends to join them in a feast. And every year since then, grateful Americans have come together in feasting and thanks on the fourth Thursday of the month. Well, none of that is quite true.
