We feel a surge of regional chauvinism on Thanksgiving mornings when we shiver on the streets of Plymouth to bear witness to the Pilgrim Progress March. On a day dominated by football and gluttony, were thankful for the purity of this reenactment of the 1621 Thanksgiving service. These gatherings of the descendants of Pilgrims and Native Americans could happen only in New England, and with Thanksgiving upon us, were thankful to call them our own. In fact, we have a lot to be thankful for as New England travelers. Heres another dozen.
