The first Thanksgiving feast was held in 1621 in the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts. That was almost 390 years ago. Yet Thanksgiving was not an official U.S. holiday until 1941.
According to the National Turkey Federation this country eats approximately 46 million turkeys at Thanksgiving. I hope you like turkey leftover sandwiches since the average turkey you find at the store is about 15 pounds, which equates to 690 million pounds of turkey meat.
Don't forget to buckle your seat belt this holiday. According to AAA more than 38 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles from home over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I am saying "thanks" to you, our readers! Without you we wouldn't have a newsletter. It doesn't matter if you live in the U.S. or not. We all have a lot to be thankful for!
I'm not adding any new plays tonight. Enjoy your friends and family tomorrow. Don't forget that the markets are only open half a day on Friday.
