We all know these food items to belong to one weight-adding culprit: Thanksgiving. But how can we pass up on such deliciousness?

While many tend to participate in this day of grace and gluttony, few cherish the past of the Pilgrims. Yet one tradition is sure to stay: The Turkey Pardon. Each year since 1947 the White House spares a turkey from becoming a main dish. Other annual trends have also taken flight: football & parade watching, wishbone breaking, luxurious nap taking and the newest addition: Black Friday prepping.

Did you know? The largest pumpkin pie ever made weighed 2,020 pounds. Try to tackle that one at your family reunion this year’s Turkey Day!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Day of Thanks.
