Here Are 11 Fun Facts About Thanksgiving

- 88% of Americans have Turkey on Thanksgiving. 12% don’t know what they’re missing.
- Minnesota raised 46 million Turkeys a couple of years back. 254 million total were raised in the U.S. last year. That’s a lot of drum sticks.
- Over 46 million Turkeys were consumed last year. More than are eaten on Christmas and Easter combined. Sorry Santa.
