This weekend we celebrate Thanksgiving, or as some correct history purists might refer to it– the systematic murder of the original American settlers. A lot has been written about the first Thanksgiving. How accurate those accounts in American History books that line the shelves of our Elementary schools are, at best, questionable. Regardless it’s the second Thanksgiving that hasn’t been explored nearly as much. Until now.
Thanks to We Are Thomasse, a married British-American comedy team comprised of Nick Afka Thomas and Sarah Ann Masse, we finally get a peek into what went down on the eve of history’s second ever Thanksgiving celebration. Probably. Shot within a beautiful Fall backdrop, we find our happy Pilgrim couple collecting fire wood and discussing plans for Thanksgiving dinner. Elenor wants to invite all their friends, including the Native Americans again. Husband John, however, doesn’t think that’s a great idea– for a myriad of reasons, most of which, as you can imagine, are suspect. Check out the action below to see if they can come to some sort of agreement– you know, in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
