Happy Thanksgiving ~ Quiz

Thanksgiving is truly a special day. It was first celebrated in 1621 when the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians shared a fall harvest.  In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving to be held each year in November. In the United States, Thanksgiving is held on the fourth Thursday in November. Canada too has a national day of thanksgiving and that day occurs on the second Monday in October.

I apologize for not having the full answers, I had a lot of problems uploading this quiz and finally gave up and decided on just Yes or No.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Carol! I’m sending you all my good thoughts 🙂
    I got 7 right out of 9 – I really thought you were kidding about the sleep-inducing amino acid! It explains why I always feel drowsy on Christmas afternoons (that’s the only time turkey is traditionally eaten here). Oh and I bet those turkeys had fun in Disney World. What did they do – go on the rides?! 😀

    • Yes Norman, they say it is true about the turkey and sleep, although the amount of food consumed today also contributes to needing a long nap. 🙂 I have a turkey breast in the crock pot, much easier and less messy. Enjoy! 🙂

      • About the turkeys at Disney…. On November 20, 2007, President George W. Bush granted a “pardon” to two turkeys, named May and Flower, at the 60th annual National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation, held in the Rose Garden at the White House. The two turkeys were flown to Orlando, Florida, where they served as honorary grand marshals for the Disney World Thanksgiving Parade. The current tradition of presidential turkey pardons began in 1947, under Harry Truman, but the practice is said to have informally begun with Abraham Lincoln, who granted a pardon to his son Tad’s pet turkey.
