This year has just flown by. We promoted 2 new offices in AZ and have several more on deck for 2019! Thanksgiving is the time of year to gather with friends and family and be thankful for things we have and have accomplished over the year. We all have different traditions and different foods we look forward to, we all have family and friends we haven’t seen in a while and it’s nice to catch up. The actual first Thanksgiving was really an autumn harvest celebrated with the Plymouth colonist and the Wampanoag Indians. They kept the tradition going for many years and Abraham Lincoln officially declared it a holiday during the Civil War.
Here are 10 fun Facts about Turkey day:
