The PIA Western Alliance Wishes You a Happy Thanksgiving

Posted By Administration, Monday, November 25, 2019

On behalf of the PIA Western Alliance board of directors, and the management and staff, Weekly Industry News wishes you the happiest of Thanksgivings.

We are thankful for you, and for your membership and for the contributions you make to this most incredible industry. And with that we begin this Thanksgiving issue of Weekly Industry News with some fun Thanksgiving facts and we start with the meal:

  We will eat 46 million turkeys on Thursday

  The average turkey for weighs 15 pounds

  The state consuming the most turkeys on Thanksgiving day is California

  4,500 is the average number of calories consumed on Thanksgiving Day

  By the way, Butterball will answer over 100,000 turkey-cooking questions this month and next


Football and Thanksgiving

  The tradition of football on Thanksgiving started in 1876 with a game between Yale and Princeton

  The National Football League began its annual game — and now games — in 1920

  It used to be that just Dallas and Detroit played games but a third has been added


One last TV fact

  Most of you will watch the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on TV

  It started in 1924 when 400 employees marched from Convent Ave to 145th street in New York City.

  There were no balloons or floats on the inaugural day just live animals from the Central Park Zoo

Last facts

  Over 54 million of us are going to travel this weekend

  That’s up 4.8% from a year ago

  Why the fourth week? That’s where President Abraham Lincoln put it
