Thanksgiving day free-for-all

271 million turkeys are estimated to be raised in 2008 and I wonder how many million will be eaten tomorrow? This is just one of the fun facts on Thanksgiving you can find on the Census Bureau's Facts for Features web page. This is just one of the sites from the US government to go to for questions on Thanksgiving (or Turkey Day as my family calls it). You can find a list of resources from's Thanksgiving Day page.

I think another perennial favorite (see last year's blog post) is the pardoning of the turkey. You can see this year's ceremony and read all about Pumpkin and Pecan at the White House site. This year Pumpkin and Pecan get to go live out the rest of their lives at Disneyland, which sounds good to me.

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!
