Interesting Thanksgiving Facts
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 over a three day harvest festival.
Turkey wasn’t on the menu at the first Thanksgiving. Venison, duck, goose, oysters,
lobster, eel, and fish were likely served, alongside pumpkins and cranberries
(but not pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce!).
In the original Roman calendar, November was the ninth month of the year.
It got its name from the Latin word “novem” which means nine. However, it became the
eleventh month when the Romans added in January and February to the start of the year.
Throughout much of history, November has often been thought of as a somber
month because it signaled the start of winter. People would spend the month
storing up their harvest and preparing their food and homes in order to survive the winter.
November in the Northern Hemisphere is similar to May in the Southern Hemisphere.
