As the holiday season begins, most of us are planning to gather with friends and loved ones. For hundreds of years we have gathered, not only for Thanksgiving, but for homecoming ceremonies, family reunions and holiday parties.

When unable to discover the origin of the image, it is also quite fun to imagine the events. Here are a few of the gatherings which remain a mystery.
