Happy Thanksgiving

Postby blackduckdog2 » Thu Nov 28, 2013 4:46 pm

If you grew up in New England way back in the Dark Ages like I did, you got brownie points just for having had family on the Mayflower. My dad had copies of the family tree available for all of us kids to bring in on show and tell day, and the teachers just ate that schit up, like we were royalty or something, even though our clothes were rattier than anyone else's. It's weird, I did nothing to deserve any attention for my heritage, but I'm still proud of it to this day.
Anyway, this hymn and handbells really bring out the Puritan in me.

They had handbells way before they had pipe organs, in case you wondered

My wife has roots that go all the way back to the Mayflower. It'd be pretty neat to know how many people in America share common Mayflower ancestry.

They left England because of religious persecution and came here and slaughtered indians because they would not convert.

Actually, you're confusing the Pilgrims with the relatively johnny-come-lately Puritans. In any case, they didn't clash over religion very much. More your basic land grab, and it's pretty unlikely it would have gone down much differently had the Indians offered to convert
