Brazil brought Thanksgiving to their country in 1940 when a Brazilian Ambassador to the United States talked about it to many of the Brazilians.

They call it Dia de Ação de Graças.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America, with about 49 million produced annually. Just six states—Minnesota, North Carolina, Arkansas, Virginia, Missouri and Indiana—produce two-thirds of the birds raised in the United States!

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

Most people are familiar with the term "flock of pigeons" or "gaggle of geese,"but did you know that a group of turkeys is called a "rafter"? A rafter of turkeys!

Originated in Louisiana, a Turducken is a de-boned turkey stuffed with a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed with a small de-boned chicken. The cavity of the chicken and the rest of the gaps are filled with, a highly seasoned
dressing, some versions have a different stuffing for each bird.

After the Apollo 12 crew splashed down on November 24,1969, they spent four days aboard the USS Hornet in quarantine. Thanksgiving that year was on the 27th, which meant the crew was in their specially converted Airstream trailer on an aircraft carrier for the holiday, and for President Nixon's visit. But quarantine didn't mean they had to eat the prepackaged meals like they'd taken to the Moon. They sat down that Thursday evening to a dinner of turkey with cranberry sauce and a choice of cherry or pecan pie before settling in to watch "Good-by Columbus."

More than 94% of Thanksgiving dinners include cranberry sauce. It takes
about 200 cranberries to make one can of sauce.

About 95% of cranberries are processed into juice, sauce, dried, etc. Only about 5% are sold fresh.

Wisconsin has been the #1 cranberry producer in the US, producing around 60% for the nation.
