Thanksgiving is almost here! I can't wait to eat turkey, cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, rolls, and gravy! It's my favorite "food" holiday of the year. Side note: We call it dressing whether we stuff it in the turkey or cook it separately. It's just dressing, and ours MUST contain cornbread. Maybe that's a Southern thing. Do you call is dressing or stuffing? Do you use regular bread? Oysters? I'm so curious!
In addition to the food, I love a good parade! Our city's parade was cancelled in 2020 like most others, but it is back this year. I like to record it and watch it back on my own time.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, did you know that the date has been changed more than once. In 1939, the last Thursday would have been November 30. President F. D. Roosevelt was worried that Thanksgiving being the last day of the month would shorten the Christmas shopping season making it more difficult for the economy to recover. So, he moved it to the "second-to-the-last-Thursday of the month. Some of the states refused to accept the new date, so for two years, there were two different Thanksgiving days in the US. In 1941, Congress voted to move the holiday back to the last Thursday of November, and it has remained there ever since.
Now let's get funny...
