PRAGER UNIVERSITY: What's the Truth About the First Thanksgiving?

"We teach what isn’t taught." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Michael Medved

“Today, with our continued blessings so obvious, and so overwhelming, the only reason to treat this beloved national holiday as a time of mourning is that some foolish Americans actually think that’s a good idea.  The Pilgrims knew better.  They understood that people of every culture and every era can gain more from gratitude than from guilt.” – M.M


“The celebration, later know as, the First Thanksgiving, actually involved a three-day harvest festival in October.  Apparently inspired by the biblical holiday of Sukkot, or the Feast of Tabernacles.  Ninety hungry Indian warriors joined the 53 surviving Pilgrims for this occasion…[T]he sense of purpose of the original Pilgrims left a permanent imprint on the national character…They saw themselves as instruments, not masters, of a mysterious master plan." - M.M.
