What are your thoughts on this. Did your teacher try to make you weare that stupid pilgrim hat too ?
I remeber as a kid
My adoptive parents wrote plays for the youth group at the church
they did the pilgrim indian thing
and She made me be a pilgrim dressed me in a costume and everything
I argued and argued ( you know we never did get along even in the early years) that I was not a pilgrim but an indian
she said she knew that but I was going to be a pilgrim for this community play and my adoptive brother who was white dressed up in a brown fringed outfit like you would see in those old western movies. with a feathered headband no shirt.
I was only about 6yrs at the time my adoptive brother was a teenager we still had foster kids in our home cause I remember they were in this play too.

I forgot all about this event until I read this thread

I think St. Patrick's Day is a big joke, but, let the white folks have at least one day. Hey, you can't ever say that white people don't have any culture, ever see how they dress up for St. Patty's Day? Hollay!!!
I got in trouble for punching another kid who pinched me for not wearing green. I demanded to know why he got to pinch me, doesn't he get in trouble, too? They said no because (implied) it is what everyone does on St. Patrick's Day and if you don't live by our traditions you can just leave our country. That was in the early 1980's. I think.

What a great thought. Why didn't we think of that?

As for claiming Europe for the ndns, that WOULD be a hoot. Maybe we should start looking for someone to finance it, ay?

there a show on Columbus a year or so on Discovery or Learning Channel or one of those. yeah he was a son of a weaver, but the actual location of his birth was in Spain, in the Caledonia region. the show referred to several letters that he wrote in Spainish and in Italian, the Spainish letters were were written by someone who was fluent. the Italian letters were written by someone who had a basic knowledge. when he went to the Spainish court, he said he was from Italy to make hide elements of his past.
