I imagine a young child asleep at the dinner table as curious critters gather around to see what is happening or perhaps join the feast.

There are many different Thanksgiving narratives, personal and historical. Learning about them, even those very different from yours, adds nuance to the world.
There is a beautiful article in Time about alternate Thanksgiving narratives that I'd like to share with you. Follow the link here.
