judy Don't forget Thanksgiving (songs) (61* d) RE: Don't forget Thanksgiving 21 Nov 97

Sir: Like Jerry I've never heard the Jewish connection (and I'm Jewish). Most holidays are connected with seasonal changes. Even in sunny LA we sing about the sleigh going over the snow. (and I've never ridden in a sleigh, or a sled for that matter). "Molly's Pilgrim" is a wonderful children's book which I recommend to anyone of any age. It tells of a recent immigrant who doesn't feel connected to the "Pilgrims" until her mother shows her that the Pilgrims were immigrants just like they are. And thanks for the cute Kindergarten story and dance.

Jerry: I must have it on you for years because I learned that song in my public elementary school and there was no issue of singing it or Christmas Carols throughout high school as I can remember.
