 Some high school students of Texas showed their support for one teacher this weekend.Mr Love had a rough week.He had actually been bullied1 by a couple of students.So,50 or 6 others decided2 to,well,show him some love.They gathered outside the house this Sunday evening and brought Mr Love out so they could share their musical message.

All you need is love.All you need is love,love.
The students planned this entirely3 on their own,a great way to show some appreciation4 and pick up someone spirit.
Today's shoutout goes to Mr Pechtl's social studies classes at Scobey high school at Scobey Montanna.Who established Thanksgiving as a national US holiday?You know what to do?Was it Ben Franklin?Thomas Jefferson?Thomas Edison?Or Teddy R?You've got 3 seconds.Go.
President Lincoln's Thanksgiving day proclamation in 1863 established it as a national annual event.That's your answer and that's your shoutout.
President Franklin might have made the first annual Thanksgiving proclamation .He would have been late celebrating the first Thanksgiving meal.242 years late.The tradition goes all the way to 1621, when pilgrims5 and native Americans sat down, dined6 together and celebrated7 the harbis.But the holiday has changed a little over the years.Feast8 your eyes on this.
Oh,sure,it might have started with a cornucopia9 and a big feast.But not a turkey.There's no proof that turkey was on the first Thanksgiving table in 1621.The fact that it is today isn't the only unexplained history of Thanksgiving.
First,take football.What would the pilgrims and native Americans say about this?They came together in a spirit of harmony.It's not what the teens do.Then,there's shopping ,severe shopping,black Friday shopping,with specials getting earlier and closer to the Thanksgiving dinner every year.But why save them for dessert when you can save moeny on a 3-D TV?
And what this has to do with giving thanks is as mysterious as stuffing.What is stuffing?For better or for weirder,this is how we celebrate Thanksgiving.It's just not the same without this stuff thing.And even if turkey did not win a place in the founding feast,it did win a place in the heart of founding father Ben Franklin.He didn't want the bold eagle to be a national symbol.He wanted the turkey.He said unlike the eagle,the turkey was a more respectable10 bird,a bird of courage.Sometimes too much courage.
No,go away.Go away! Ah!
But just as turkey attacks are often pardoned or tabled,heihei,the president pardons one turkey every year ,a tradition dating back to 1989.Is this an unusual tradition for the Thanksgiving season?Meybe,but it's not the only one.After all,at the end of dinner,we are what we eat.
Yes,turkeys.We all have some pretty unusual Thanksgiving traditions.In Maria's family,they go to the petting zoo the day before Thanksgiving to pet the turkeys in a show of appreciation.Julia and her cousin re-enacted the first Thanksgiving .Julia is always the turkey.Michael's family made the turducken,a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey.May sound disgusting ,but it really tastes good.C.'s family watches Filipino old soap operas. Every Thanksgiving there's a marathon of sopa operas.Alice's family heads to the cabin and cuts down Christmas trees.They get enough trees for half a neoghborhood ,deliver them and set up their own Christmas stuff.At Alice's house,they have a turkey that they always name pablo.Then throughout dinner,her grandfather sings songs about pablo that he made up while eating.M. and B. have a Thanksgiving bowl in their bakyard.They use ripped-up pieces of cloth and play flag football.And S. says it shouldn't matter if you have a wacky tradition.It only matters that you spend your holiday with people you love.Well,that my friends will gobble up all our time for today.We're certainly thankful for all of you who watch CNN student news.We'll be back next Monday.Have a very happy Thanksgiving.
