It’s Thanksgiving time, so welcome to Thanksgiving on Infoplease! The Thanksgiving area is divided into three categories: Holiday History, All About Turkeys and Thanksgiving Fun.
Holiday History – Here you will find information on the history of Thanksgiving, as well as, census information providing all kinds of interesting turkey numbers. You can check out the Presidential Pardon and learn how and why turkeys are receiving a Thanksgiving pardon and what happens to them after their reprieve. You will also be able to read Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation.
All About Turkeys – Here you can learn all about turkeys, obviously! Turkey is always one of the most prominent choices for dinner on this holiday and you can learn how to carve a turkey properly in just six steps! I could have used that information last year when I cooked my first turkey and then butchered it trying to carve it. Thankfully, it was still darned tasty! What else will you find in this section? Well, you’re right to ask, because there is more! You can check out Turkey Trivia and Fowl FAQs.
Thanksgiving Fun – Here you can do a Thanksgiving Crossword puzzle or take the Thanksgiving Quiz. You can even see a listing of Thanksgiving themed movies that you could rent to watch until the bird is ready or nap through after dinner!
Either way, this is a great way to start preparing for the holiday. I can’t wait to spend some time with my family on Thanksgiving. Maybe I’ll show off my newly acquired turkey carving knowledge!
