Thanksgiving Traditions

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Wishing you a very fun filled holiday with no turkey fires or family drama! While you are staring at your turkey waiting for it to cook, I thought you may want some Thanksgiving day trivia to wow your guests!

Here are some regional Thanksgiving traditions... 23% of people doing Black Friday shopping! No thanks, I will hide in my house till all the toasters and TV deals have been ripped from crazy shoppers' hands.

Turkey fires are most common in Texas on Thanksgiving (shout out to my Lone Star State), but the numbers have been declining!

Live animals — including lions, bears, tigers, camels, goats, elephants, and donkeys — were a part of the original Parade processions.
Between 100 and 200 POUNDS of glitter are on average used per float in the Macy's Day Parade. I wonder if that includes those vintage elephant 'floats'.

The oldest turkey trot started in 1896 (!!!) in Buffalo. Which you may want to consider doing because...

The average number of calories consumed on Thanksgiving (including snacks) is 4500 calories! 

Hope that you are enjoying spending time with your loved ones!


  1. happy thanksgiving! enjoy your long weekend :)

  2. 4500? Omg that's insane!!! Hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving Shay!

  3. I think I worked off all my Thanksgiving dinner before I even ate! And I didn't snack before dinner so even better. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
