  1. First feast: The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 and lasted three days, not just one meal!
  2. Turkey talk: Wild turkeys can run at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour and fly as fast as 55 miles per hour.
  3. President’s pardon: Every year, the U.S. president “pardons” a turkey, saving it from being dinner.
  4. Big birds: The heaviest turkey ever raised weighed a whopping 86 pounds—about the size of a large dog.

  6. Feathered friends: Turkeys have about 3,500 feathers at maturity.
  7. Berry love: Turkeys love to munch on berries, their favorite snack.
  8. Parade day: The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade started in 1924 and is a beloved holiday tradition.
  9. Football feast: Football is a big part of the holiday, with NFL games played on Thanksgiving since 1920.
