Here is some Thanksgiving Trivia!
- The first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621.

- U.S. farmers will also produce 735 million pounds of cranberries, which are native to the Americas. The top producers are Wisconsin and Massachusetts.
- NBC Radio broadcast the first national Thanksgiving Day game in 1934, when the Detroit Lions hosted the Chicago Bears. (GO BEARS!)
