Did you know...

  • The American Automobile Association (AAA) estimates over 42  million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend - Please be careful if you are one of them.
  • According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America, with a planned production total of over 46.million turkeys!
  • Six states — Minnesota, North Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri, Virginia, and Indiana — account for nearly two-thirds of the over 250 million turkeys that will be raised in the U.S. this year.
  • The National Turkey Federation (who knew there was such a federation LOL)  estimated that 46 million turkeys—one fifth of the annual total of 230+ million consumed in the United States—were eaten at Thanksgiving.
  • In a survey conducted by the National Turkey Federation, nearly 88 percent of Americans said they eat turkey at Thanksgiving.
  • The average weight of turkeys purchased for Thanksgiving is 15 pounds, which means over 600 million pounds of turkey will be consumed in the U.S. during Thanksgiving.

Wow, Jennifer, it is overwhelming to see in numbers the amount of turkey consumed on this holiday.  Also so glad I am not traveling during this holiday season!

Hi Jennifer

Well I didn't know these things but can't say I am surprised. Sounds like the US was going to be breaking a record with travelers this year - the most in about 12 years I heard. glad I am not one of them.

Happy Thanksgiving.
