What are you grateful for? Below are 4 things Vintage Charm is especially thankful for this year!

Impress your friends and family with some tasty turkey trivia and Thanksgiving fun facts!
- Only male turkeys, called toms, gobble. Females, called hens, cackle. Oh well… we are still going to say ‘gobble, gobble’ all Thursday long.
- Canadians also celebrate Thanksgiving, but they do it the second Monday in October. Interesting, eh?
- The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 with 400 employees. There were no large balloons. It only featured live animals from Central Park Zoo. Can you really call it parade if there isn’t a giant Garfield balloon? We don’t think so.
- Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, not the eagle.
- According to the Guinness Book of Records, the heaviest turkey on record weighs 86 pounds. That’s one big bird! The average turkey for Thanksgiving weighs 15 pounds.
- Americans consume 46 million turkeys each Thanksgiving. Californians eat the most turkey in the U.S. on Thanksgiving Day! Surfs up? More like forks up.
