Happy Thanksgiving

Here’s some fun facts about Thanksgiving from National Geographic’s website:

  • The largest pumpkin pie ever made weighed 2,020 pounds (916.25 kilograms).
  • A ripe cranberry will bounce. 
  • All turkeys and chickens have wishbones.
  • Canadians celebrate their own Thanksgiving every October.
  • Abraham Lincoln declared a national day of Thanksgiving in 1863.
  • The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was held in 1924.
  • Hope you have lots to be thankful for!
