The Eyes of Texas: Feast on this!
Summary: Plymouth may get props for being home to the first Thanksgiving, but other states claim to have had similar feasts PRIOR to the Pilgrims' harvest celebration in 1621. That includes Texas, which touts a great feast back in 1598.

It's a journey still celebrated in Texas more than 400 years later. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
