Happy Thanksgiving!

The week of Thanksgiving has finally come! This is a time to come together and be grateful for the things in life that we sometimes take for granted. Thanksgiving is a day for gathering with family, friends, and loved ones. Whether you’re aware of it or not, there are 3 North American natives that most of us traditionally indulge in on this Holiday: Turkey, Cranberries, and football!

Here are some interesting facts about our 3 American natives:

Turkeys
Ancestors of the modern turkey have been roaming the United States as far back as 75 million years ago. They can run up to 25 mph, fly up to 55 mph, and are quite brave little birdies. That red dangling piece protruding from just above their beak is called a snood. Turkeys roost in trees at night and use their fierce talons to dig into the tree branches to offer a firm anchor while sleeping.

Cranberries
As mentioned earlier, cranberries are a native species to the United States. Over half of the world’s supply of cranberries are harvested in Wisconsin. Recipes using cranberries date back to at least the 18th century. With the advent of the ‘wet’ harvesting method, where bogs would be flooded to make harvesting significantly more efficient, came about the necessity for a method to prepare aesthetically blemished cranberries. The ultimate solution for this problem was the canned jellied cranberry sauce that is now a staple of your Thanksgiving feast. 

Football
Football began to evolve from rugby in the late 1800s. Teams initially could not throw forward pass, and had 3 attempts to move the ball 5 yards. This is where the 5-yard marks come from. The first televised pro game aired in 1939 to only a few hundred people.

Here are some sweet Sporcle quizzes to give you something to do while digesting your great Thanksgiving feast:
