In honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday, this week’s Did you know? is for the birds. Turkey that is. And if I’m lucky, that’ll be accompanied by some gravy, potatoes, and topped off with some pumpkin pie. Yum. Let’s go!

Did you know?

In 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November as a national day of thanksgiving.

The preliminary estimate of turkeys raised in the United States in 2006 is 265 million.

The forecast for U.S. cranberry production in 2006 is 664 million pounds (up 6 percent from 2005).

In 2004, the typical American consumed 13.4 pounds of turkey, mainly during Thanksgiving time.

In December of 2005, frozen whole turkeys were worth $1.07 per pound.

3 U.S. cities are named after the Thanksgiving main dish–Turkey, TX, Turkey Creek, LA, Turkey, NC.
