Did you know that the first Thanksgiving celebration can be traced back to the Plymouth Pilgrims in the fall of 1621?

Did you know that the president to proclaim the first ‘National Day of Thanksgiving’ in 1789 was George Washington?

Did you konw Sarah Josepha Hale, a magazine editor, campaigned to make Thanksgiving a National Holiday in 1827 and succeeded?

Did you know the ‘wishbone’ of the turkey is used in a good luck ritual on Thanksgiving Day?

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling Thanksgiving!
