Thanksgiving

Did you know:
In 1621, the Pilgrim leader, Governor William Bradford, organized the first Thanksgiving feast in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Participating in the three-day feast were about 90 neighboring Wampanoag Indians and their chief, Massasoit.

It is estimated that 250 million turkeys will be raised in the United States in 2009. That’s down 8% from the number raised in 2008, which together weighed 7.9 billion pounds and were valued at $4.5 billion.

Long before the Europeans came to America, it was the Aztecs who domesticated turkeys. They were raised primarily for food and their feathers were used for decoration.

The 2009 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will mark the return of a new, updated version of Marvel’s Spider-Man. The gigantic balloon — one of the most memorable in the history of the parade — flew for over a decade in the ’80s and ’90s before being retired in 1998.
