Five Kernel Prayer
The first winter the pilgrims spent in America was very cold. Some days all they had was enough for each person to have only five kernels of corn. When spring came the pilgrims planted their corn. The corn crop flourished and they had lots of food the next year. From that time on at Thanksgiving, the pilgrims each kept kernels of corn at their plates to remind them of God’s blessings.
