We asked first graders at Knightdale Elementary School, “If the pilgrims showed up to your doorstep on Thanksgiving, what would you do or say?”

Here’s how they responded:

Joseph Morgan, 6

“I would say to get out, because I don’t want no pilgrims in my house.”

Luke Bandy, 7

“Get out of here. Enjoy your own Thanksgiving.”

Alondra Alejo-Jose, 7

“Hello. Are you the pilgrim?”

Christian Odom, 7

“Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for coming to my house.”

Luis Perez-Zambrano, 6

“I would introduce them to my house.”

Kingston White, 7

“How are you here? Because if they were still alive they would be a hundred something.”
