Thanksgiving by the Numbers

Thanksgiving by the Numbers

By Brad Beckett

Next week is that annual American holiday of giving thanks to the Almighty for all that makes this nation great.  Today’s graphic from WalletHub takes an in-depth look at Thanksgiving’s humble roots and how it has evolved over time –  from how much we spend to how much we eat.  As always, stay safe and Have a Happy Friday – as well as a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

“Settlers of the Plymouth Colony and their Wampanoag tribe predecessors kicked off a grand tradition way back in 1621. And for that we should all be thankful, if for nothing else than a day off from work and school. But the Thanksgiving we celebrate today is a lot different than that first festival in honor of a particularly bountiful harvest.”
