Happy Thanksgiving One and All. I hope you are enjoying this day with your loved ones. Here's a few little fun facts about Thanksgiving:

Thanksgiving Facts
  • Female turkeys (called hens) don’t gobble. Only male turkeys gobble.

  • Thanksgiving didn’t become a national holiday until 200 years after the first Thanksgiving.
  • The heaviest turkey on record weighs 86 pounds.
