Hopefully, Thanksgiving is a day to slow down for a few hours, join hands with our family and friends, and truly reflect on how blessed we are. There is so much in this beautiful world to be thankful for. Take a moment to realize that on a day that is supposedly dedicated for giving thanks.
What is Thanksgiving? It’s many things to us. A time to get together and spend time with friends and loved ones.
Here are a few facts about the origin of Thanksgiving:
- Turkey isn’t responsible for drowsiness or the dreaded “food coma.” So what causes us to be so sleepy afterwards? Scientists say that extra glass of wine, the high-calorie meal or relaxing after a busy work schedule is what makes you drowsy!
- No forks at the first Thanksgiving! The first Thanksgiving was eaten with spoons and knives — but no forks! That’s right, forks weren’t even introduced to the Pilgrims until 10 years later and weren’t a popular utensil until the 18th century.
- Each year, the president of the U.S pardons a turkey and spares it from being eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. The first turkey pardon ceremony started with President Truman in 1947. President Obama pardoned a 45-pound turkey named Courage, who has flown to Disneyland and served as Grand Marshal of the park’s Thanksgiving Day parade!
- The NFL started the Thanksgiving Classic games in 1920 and since then the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys have hosted games on Turkey Day. In 2006, a third game was added with different teams hosting.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family at Fowler & Sons to you and your family.
