Did You Know? Countdown to Thanksgiving (11/17)

Thursday, November 17th, 2011


Did You Know?
Facts, Figures &
Folklore about the Pilgrims
& America’s Thanksgiving

Nov 17 : 07 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that the average Thanksgiving turkey weighs 15 pounds?

Hens can range from 10 to 18 pounds, while toms can be as large as 25 pounds. The most traditional way to prepare a turkey is to stuff and roast it, although some chefs — particularly in the south — swear by deep frying their birds.

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 24, 2011.
