For your holiday viewing enjoyment, I now present Thanksgiving Dining Etiquette for Young Children: Dining Together (ca. 1951).
Let the fantasies begin.
I can’t help but wonder how they got that family to behave so nicely.
“At the first Thanksgiving, the Indians didn’t eat turkey with a fork, but it is easy to learn to use one the right way to take small mouthfuls.”
“It is good to learn to chew with lips closed, and when to take a drink.”
And what’s up with those Christmas sweaters?
This will not be the scene in my house today. Except maybe for the sweaters.
For the record, I already know “when to take a drink.”
