An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving

An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving is a short story by Louisa May Alcott, first published in 1882 in Aunt Jo's Scrap Bag #6. It is presented as a dramatic reading by several narrators on LibriVox.

When a neighbor brings word that Grandma is sick, Mr. and Mrs. Bassett hurry off to tend to her, leaving their seven children to prepare for Thanksgiving on their own. The story of the adventures of Eph, Tilly, Prue, Seth, Sol, Roxy, and Rhody Bassett as they go sledding, face bears, tell old stories, and wrestle with plum puddings is a holiday treat fit to make anyone stop and count their own blessings.
