Mike & Kate wish you Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Did you know this year is the 150 anniversary of Thanksgiving?  Yes the first Thanksgiving happened in 1621 . . . 392 years ago.  But Thanksgiving wasn’t OFFICIALLY an American holiday until President Lincoln made it one in 1863.

Here’s some random Thanksgiving trivia for you . . . arm yourself, and bust it out when there’s a lull in dinner conversation before a debate about why you’re not married yet  break out.


Thank goodness Ben Franklin didn’t get his way….he really wanted to make the Turkey our national bird instead of the Bald Eagle….I don’t want to imagine what roast bald eagle tastes like….

Turkey probably wasn’t even on the menu for the first Thanksgiving…..the main course was venison.

.  Thanksgiving is on Thursday because . . . that day seemed like it was the most wide open.  There’s no real significance to Thursday, people just didn’t have much going on and it seemed like the best day to put extra NFL football games on the schedule.

The woman who pushed Thanksgiving from an informal tradition into a holiday was Sarah Hale from New Hampshire.  She was an author . . . who also wrote “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.  Yes, one woman is responsible for both.

Did you know turkeys CAN’T HAVE SEX?  Today’s turkeys have been bred for meat, so they’re TOO FAT TO breed naturally and now they’re all artificially inseminated.


Happy Thanksgiving from all your friends here at MIX 106
