Scrooby Snacks

Thanksgiving is only a few days away, so what better time for some good old pilgrim history? No better time, that's when.

You all basically know the story - Pilgrims (i.e. people with silly clothes) didn't like what was going on in England re: religion so they hopped on a big boat, sailed to "India," met up with the "Indians," shared some "Indian" cuisine, settled in for the long haul, invited some friends over, killed the "Indians" with disease and gunpowder, and decided to make it a tradition to eat lots of food every November.

But what you didn't know was that the pilgrims (i.e. people with silly clothes) originally came from a town in England called Scrooby. Like Scrooby Doo. No wonder they liked turkey sandwiches so much.
