Nov 16 : 10 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that Thanksgiving didn’t become an official national holiday for more than 200 years?

It wasn’t until 1863 that President Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November a national day of thanksgiving.

Did you know that as many 107 million American homes will celebrate Thanksgiving this year?

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 26th.
