PS....we will have a Black Friday sale. I will send a newsletter with the details...and announce the details here on tomorrows blog post as well

Thanksgiving Fun Facts:
  1. There was no pecan pie or mashed potatoes at the first Thanksgiving dinner. The pilgrims and Native Americans feasted on corn, barley, wild turkeys, venison, and waterfowl.
  2. We consider Thanksgiving an American holiday, but our neighbors to the north, Canada, also celebrate Thanksgiving. However, they celebrate on the second Monday of October, wisely having some extra time to recover from one huge turkey feast before diving in again at Christmas.
  3. The average weight of a commercially bred turkey in the U.S. is 15 pounds. That hefty bird normally consists of 70% white meat and 30% dark meat.
  4. Turkeys are easily frightened. so much so, that they can have a heart attack. Once, the U.S. Air Force was conducting test flights that broke the sound barrier. The sonic boom literally scared the life right out of turkeys in the nearby area. Also, when spooked but not scared to death, a turkey can run as fast a 20 mph or fly up to 55 mph.
  5. Turkeys have bad night vision. All the better to catch your dinner after dark.
  6. There are 12 places in the the United States that are named Turkey, including Turkey Creek, LA; Turkey, NC; and Turkey, TX. You’ll remember the Panhandle town of Turkey, TX from PETA’s 2011 attempt to change the name to “Tofurky.”
  7. The first Thanksgiving was a 3-day party. Now, we have one big party and take 3 days to recover.
  8. U.S. Presidents have traditionally pardoned a turkey from becoming Thanksgiving dinner since Harry S. Truman began the modern practice. It’s said that Abraham Lincoln may have started the turkey pardoning when he officially spared his son’s pet turkey.
  9. Thanksgiving wasn’t a national holiday until 1941.
  10. The tradition of Thanksgiving and football began in 1876 with a college football game between Ivy League schools, Yale and Princeton.
BIG smooches!
Kim
