Thanksgiving Fun Facts About Food
Thanksgiving is all about the turkey. But did you know that turkey was not even on the menu at the beginning of celebrating this holiday? Housewives preferred duck, goose, lobster. Nowadays, around 45 million turkeys are cooked every Thanksgiving! And 50 million pumpkin pies! How important the turkey-making is to people, shows the fact that certain companies have hotlines open for all the turkey-related questions. And they receive thousands of calls every day.
Other than turkey, potatoes, pumpkin, and cranberry were on the tables from the start. And those tables, they are really overflowing with foods and goods. Did you know that an average person eats over 4000kcal during this specific Thursday? That is twice the recommended. But hey, it is Thanksgiving only once a year!
Little Thanksgiving History
The Thanksgiving tradition began in the 17th century and originated from harvest feast shared by the English colonists (Pilgrims). And In that time, it lasted couple of days. We could use longer Thanksgiving, right? At least now we have Black Friday, Cyber Monday and “Drinksgiving”, all happening in the same week.
Drinksgiving? Sounds like something with potential! It is an unofficial holiday also referred to as The Black Wednesday, which is booming in some places. It is the night before Thanksgiving and the main task is to go to bars, drink and have fun. Let’s hope it will become a national holiday one day! As for the Thanksgiving, it got its national holiday title during the era of American president Abraham Lincoln. And the date when it is celebrated has been changing over time. Now we stick to the last Thursday in November.
