Clay Aiken – Fun Facts!

To me, Thanksgiving is the best time of a year!!

 You probably guessed that as I seem to post more graphics on the blog at this time of year.

Today, I thought I would add a few fun facts about Thanksgiving.  I found these at Good Housekeeping website!  (Yes, Clay is in the blog today too)

1. The first Thanksgiving was actually a three-day celebration.

Today, Thanksgiving is one day — maybe two if you count Black Friday. But apparently the Pilgrims wanted to party even harder. Governor William Bradford organized the feast, inviting the Plymouth colonists’ Native American allies. But it was only until the Wampanoag Indian guests came and joined the Pilgrims that they decided to extend the affair.

2. About 46 million turkeys are cooked for Thanksgiving each year.

It’s tradition,  after all! And on Christmas, 22 million families host an encore with another turkey.

3. Only male turkeys actually gobble.

You may have been taught in pre-school that a turkey goes “gobble, gobble” — but that’s not entirely true. Only male turkeys, fittingly called gobblers, actually make the sound. Female turkeys cackle instead.

4. Most Americans like Thanksgiving leftovers more than the actual meal.

Almost eight in 10 agree that the second helpings of stuffing, mashed potatoes and pie beat out the big dinner itself, according to a 2015 Harris Poll.

5. There are four places in the country named Turkey.

The U.S. Census has identified another seven called Cranberry, and a grand total of 33 dubbed Plymouth.

The website, TheaterMania, has put together a great video of Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard  and their interview on Monday.  It is new to me and I always enjoy watching the guys joking together.  The video also has a bit of beautiful singing.  I hope you enjoy it!

Have a great day and if you are traveling, be extra careful!!
