Happy Thanksgiving!

Everyone at Arpin would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all! It’s time to enjoy plenty of turkey, family bonding, and the usual holiday traditions. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we’ve complied a list of fun facts that may surprise you.

  • The first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated at Plymouth, Massachusetts, and was a three-day event.
  • Deer, lobster, chicken, fish, chestnuts, maple syrup, cabbage, and goat cheese are thought to have made up the first feast.
  • The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade took place in 1924.
  • Snoopy has been in the parade longer than any other balloon.
  • Thanksgiving is always celebrated on the last Thursday in November in the U.S.
  • 15 pounds is the average weight of a purchased turkey, which usually has about 70% white meat and 30% dark meat.
  • The President pardons a live turkey every year, then it lives the rest of its life on a historic farm.

We hope everyone has a great time and stays safe during the holiday!
