Happy Thanksgiving to our American Friends and Families! – November 25, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends and this year especially to those serving overseas and away from their families.

Here are some tid bits on Thanksgiving.

91% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Wild turkeys, while technically the same species as domesticated turkeys, have a very different taste from farm-raised turkeys. Almost all of the meat is “dark” (even the breasts) with a more intense turkey flavor. Older heritage breeds also differ in flavor.

A spooked turkey can run at speeds up to 20 miles per hour. They can also burst into flight approaching speeds between 50-55 mph in a matter of seconds.

More than 40 million green bean casseroles are served on Thanksgiving.

It was not until 1941, that congress declared Thanksgiving as a national holiday. It was declared to be the fourth Thursday in November.

And of course what Turkey tribute wouldn’t include this clip from WKRP in Cincinatti?!
