The First Thanksgiving: A Re-Enactment (VIDEO)

It's the time of year when elementary schools across the nation host their adorable (and clearly well-researched) Thanksgiving pageants. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes film, Reggie and Skyler, two rather disproportionately deep-voiced first-graders, rehearse the little scene that they will be contributing to their school's festivities.

These dedicated miniature thespians are truly inspiring, and we admire their diligence. Because you have to rehearse to, you know, make sure you get things right. And if there was ever any time of year in which you want to get everything right, it's Thanksgiving.
