Thanksgiving by the Numbers

The very first observance of Thanksgiving in the United States didn’t involve anything slightly similar to a feast. Before it became a national holiday in 1941 under President Roosevelt, this American celebration used to be an entirely religious event. It was held in church, singing psalms and praying to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Today most people celebrate this holiday watching a sports events on TV instead of game hunting, cooking turkey as their main course instead of a deer meat and waiting for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Below are a few fascinating facts and numbers behind Thanksgiving. See also How Much do Americans Spend on Halloween and Easter by the Numbers.
