Why, pray tell is there a Victorian Bobble-head here? What has THIS got to do with Thanksgiving?
This is Sarah Josepha Hale, the godmother of the American holiday of Thanksgiving, so honored and remembered in Bobble form.
2013 was the 150 anniversary of the holiday, and this woman had worked tirelessly for decades to have the day made into a National Holiday.
So when we gather together in November, we should add Sarah to the things we are thankful that day. And olives. We must be thankful for olives that can be carried to our mouths on the tips of our fingers, and perhaps use them as bobblehead finger puppets. And playing with our food, we should always be thankful for food to play with.
