Thanksgiving 2008: 14 of the Best Web Resources


Are you excited yet?  Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  These are some great resources to make the most of the holiday we found on Mashable!  My favorites are:

The History Channel
Maybe you’re not on American soil, or maybe you’ve lived in sweet, blissful ignorance about the Thanksgiving holiday all your years. In any case, some education might be best., appropriately enough, hosts a minisite dubbed “The History of Thanksgiving.” Read, listen, and watch your way through a crash course of pilgrimage and consumables.

When you’re a kid, you go to school. No ifs, ands or buts. If you’re a kid in 2008, however, you might be learning a good amount via the Web. Scholastic’s “The First Thanksgiving” resource is interactive without being as sleep-inducing as that turkey supper laced with Tryptophan.
Indeed, the US Government has plenty of things to say about Thanksgiving. Most of its highlights are educational and informational. Recipes, air travel, facts and statistics, plus USDA-approved cooking tips – in case you don’t want to get a visit from the nutrition police. Volunteerism is promoted on the page as well.
