Running with Lynn Show
Good morning UND we are looking at a cloudy day with a high of 22.
The weather is chilly and that makes it a grand time to take in a movie. The movie of the week is (drum role please) ************** Are you ready to get dumb? I can’t hear you! Are you ready to get dumb? [Dumb and Dumber To} Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels are back on the big screen- catch this ‘dumb’ movie only at the River Cinema.
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated between the Pilgrims and the Indians in 1621. That first feast was a three day affair. Life for the early settlers was difficult. The fall harvest was time for celebration. It was also a time of prayer, thanking God for a good crop. The Pilgrims and the Indians created a huge feast including a wide variety of animals and fowl, as well as fruits and vegetables from the fall harvest. This early celebration was the start of today’s holiday celebration. Like then, we celebrate with a huge feast.
Did you know? Potatoes were not part of the first Thanksgiving? Irish immigrants had not yet brought them to North America.

[Always buy a cinnamon dessert. [Why?] When people taste a great dessert they say, “this so good, what’s in this?” The answer is always cinnamon.
Have a great day everybody!
