Look at the picture and read the text Once upon a time 111 people, who were called the Puritans, came to America from Europe because they were unhappy at Homeland. They wanted to be free and happy. When they arrived, they had nothing to eat. They didn't know how to grow plants. The Indians (native people) helped them and gave them corn, pumpkin and turkey. It was a great dinner for the Puritans. They were so thankful to the Indians. Since that time the Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving Day every year in autumn.
