Uncle Aloysius and Aunt Filomena were preparing Thanksgiving dinner as always.
“Those Protestants think they’re such hot stuff,” moaned Aloysius.
“The first Thanksgiving, though, was really on September 8, 1565 in St. Augustine, Florida, before their time.”
Filomena happily humored him, knowing that he was harmless, as well as right.
“They beat those snooty Protestants by fifty six years.”
“Don Pedro Menendez proclaimed the New World for Philip II.”
“The second Thanksgiving,” he continued, “was in 1598”, and he proceeded to explain the details.
“The Indians and Spaniards were on friendly terms.”
Filomena continued listening, knowing it kept him happy.
