6 popular myths about Thanksgiving you shouldn't believe

Actually, the people who landed on Plymouth Rock referred to themselves as "Saints". In those days, ALL the early colonists were called the pilgrims.
This harvest festival wasn't solemn at all and included gambling, drinking, athletic games and even target shooting.
They didn't actually dress this way. They were just portrayed so by the artists of the 19th century.
They didn't have beef, cheese or milk on the table as well. The Pilgrims ate deer, oysters, Indian corn and berries.
As it turned out, the same feast didn't probably take place next years. The Pilgrims weren't in a right mood for that: the harvest was not that good, and newly arrived Pilgrims caused a lot of troubles.
Actually, the feast was held some time between late September and the middle of October.
