It’s Forefathers Day! On this day, we celebrate the anniversary of the pilgrims’ landing in Plymouth, Massachusetts on December 21, 1620. This holiday is also sometimes celebrated on the 22nd instead of the 21st due to a calendar mix-up that occurred hundreds of years ago!
Did you know that the Mayflower originally landed on the shores of Cape Cod in mid-November? The pilgrims waited almost a month before sailing to the mainland.
Today, celebrate our forefathers with stories of the pilgrims. You can even get your family together to reenact this legendary moment in history. Happy Forefathers Day!
