The origin of the Thanksgiving Day
The American Thanksgiving holiday began as a feast of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies almost four hundred years ago. In 1620, a boat filled with more than one hundred people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to settle in the New World. This religious group had begun to question the beliefs of the Church of England and they wanted to separate from it. The Pilgrims settled in what is now the state of Massachusetts. Their first winter in the New World was difficult. They had arrived too late to grow many crops, and without fresh food, half the colony died from disease. The following spring Indians taught them how to grow corn and showed them how to hunt and fish.
In the autumn of 1621, bountiful crops of corn and barley were harvested. The colonists had much to be thankful, so a feast was planned. They invited the local Indian chief and 90 Indians. The Indians brought deer to roast with the turkeys. In following years, many of the original colonists celebrated the autumn harvest with a feast of thanks.

World’s Largest Rabbit
This Easter Bunny called Darius weighs about 49 pounds and is four foot three inches long - making him the biggest rabbit ever recorded. However, he still has not reached his full size, with owner Annette Edwards, 59, preparing herself for another six months of growth before he hits full size.
Darius enjoys eating hay throughout the day. This is the reason why he is different from other animals. A woman, Ms Edwards has bred big bunnies before but Darius has been recognized as the largest rabbit ever recorded.
"He is so gentle and I wonder if this has helped him grow bigger than the rest. He does run around all the time, so I guess the combination of food and exercise has worked out for him.
Darius is the son of current record holder Alice and the grandson of earlier owner of the crown Amy.
When asked what is the key to breed rabbits. Ms Edward says:" there really isn't any secret, except for treating them well and really looking after them."
