Thanksgiving Day

Did you know that since Lincoln's presidency, Thanksgiving

was always celebrated the last Thursday in November? In 1939

the last Thursday would have been the 30th. Retail lobbyists

campaigned for a change to move it back a week to the 23rd,

fearing a shortened shopping season would wreak havoc

on business coffers. The public didn't like it because it 

disrupted vacation plans, football schedules, and calendar

production. Since it wasn't a federal law, the states could choose

which day they wanted. So in 1939 and 1940, there was a

"Republican's Thanksgiving" and a "Roosevelt's Thanksgiving"

also known as "Franksgiving". In 1941 Congress passed a law

that officially set the date as the fourth Thursday in November.

Give thanks

Here's hoping all your family makes it home for Thanksgiving

safely - have a wonderful holiday!
