Posted by Srayer Depot on

This time of year can get a little busy, and sometimes downright hectic. So let's take a break from the stressful stuff and kickoff Thanksgiving week with some fun Thanksgiving facts. Thanksgiving Post.png

5 Fun Thanksgiving Facts

  1. When President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863, it was largely due to the tireless efforts of a magazine editor named Sarah Josepha Hale. Her other claim to fame? She also wrote the nursery rhyme, "Mary had a Little Lamb.”
  2. Thanksgiving is not just an American holiday. Canadians also celebrate it, except they do it the second Monday in October.
  3. An estimated 46 million turkeys were eaten on Thanksgiving in 2015.
  4. What's the average number of calories an American will consume on Thanksgiving day? A whopping 4,500 calories, according to the Calorie Control Council.
  5. Not all turkeys "gobble, gobble". It turns out that only male turkeys, called toms, gobble. Females, called hens, cackle.
