A Plimoth Plantation Thanksgiving

Those who think history lessons are invariably dry and unappetizing may find themselves eating their words -- and more -- at Plimoth Plantation's annual Harvest Dinner in Plymouth, Mass. Be forewarned: It's a truly hands-on experience -- pilgrims didn't use forks, or napkins, so the accepted practice is to wipe your fingers and face directly on the tablecloth. And as if that wasn't entertaining enough, between courses guests are regaled with hymns, communal rounds and some jovial 17th century wordplay.
