|the harbor at Plymouth, Massachusetts, by janhatesmarcia|
For those of you about to celebrate the harvest by stuffing your faces (or pondering genocide), I thought a good old-fashioned name game might be a bit of holiday fun.
I've taken the list of pilgrim passengers from the Mayflower, Fortune, Anne and Little James — the first ships bound for Plymouth, Massachusetts — and numbered them. If you pick two numbers, anywhere from 1 to 90, I'll give you a "Pilgrim Name."
Just leave a comment with your desired numbers and I'll reply with your new name. If you don't celebrate, feel free to play along anyway!
Think of it as my contribution to your Thanksgiving feast. (I'm in charge of bourbon pumpkin cheesecake with pecan gingersnap crust and maple nutmeg cream pie, too.) Wear it proudly, 'cos it's going to be a rough winter.
