Five Facts Friday - Thanksgiving

1. The first Thanksgiving celebration lasted 3 days. Oh my, the calories consumed!

2. Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the second Monday in October in Canada. How that works with the Indians and Pilgrims coming to America, I have absolutely no idea.

3. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 and takes place in Manhattan. If watching from the streets of NYC, it is not advised to view the parade from Columbus Circle, as due to higher winds in this flat area, balloon teams race through it.

4. Studies suggest that the turkey meat is not to blame for the after Thanksgiving dinner sleepiness, but the carb-loaded meal consumed.

5. The 5 most popular ways to serve leftover Thanksgiving turkey are: sandwich, soup or stew, casserole, stir-fry, and salad.
