Some Turkey Day Facts
Since we are in the business of delivering pertinent information when you need it, here are some “must know” Thanksgiving facts to share:
- The original Thanksgiving was a three-day feast in 1621 between 50 Pilgrim Fathers and about 90 native Americans in celebration of a bountiful harvest.
- George Washington proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving Day, held on November 26, 1789.
- Thanksgiving was celebrated sporadically until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln declared it an annual holiday on the last Thursday in November.
- More food is eaten in the USA on Thanksgiving Day than on any other day of the year.
- Since 1947, it has been traditional for the US President to “pardon” a turkey before Thanksgiving to save it from the feast.
- “Postprandial somnolescence” is the scientific name for Thanksgiving food coma (falling asleep after a heavy meal).
Happy Feasting to all, and may you enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving! Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day with Knopman Marks.
