Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks. It all began in November 1621, when the pilgrims got together with the Wampanoag Indians for an autumn feast, which is now regarded as America’s first Thanksgiving.

It has been an annual holiday in the U.S since 1863. Many people celebrate Thanksgiving by going to a nice restaurant or going to someone’s house to celebrate with the whole family. Some people even have a checklist that tells who is bringing what dish to share.

At the age of 86, former Astronaut Buzz Aldrin is going on a trip to the South Pole from Nov. 22 through Dec. 12, 2016. He’s already been on adventures down to the Titanic, to deserts, the North Pole and almost every other location on Earth. He also went to the moon!

Nature has a funny way of doing things! Sometimes it might be a freaky forest or a crazy mountaintop. But have you ever seen some freaky animals before? Be prepared to see animals that you don’t see every day.

The seven-legged lamb: This crazy lamb was found in 2007. It is said that he suffered from a misprint in the embryo formation.

The two-headed snake: This is my worst nightmare. This snake suffers from polycephaly, meaning having more than one head, and despite how scary it is, it is fairly common.
