Here are some fun Thanksgiving facts to chew on while you're waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to be served.

1. $670 Million: The monetary value of the Turkeys killed

each year for Thanksgiving Day meals. An estimated 46

million turkeys are cooked each year with the average

turkey costing roughly 91 cents a pound.

2. $48,052: The median household income of the four

towns in the United States that have Turkey in their names:

Turkey Creek, AZ; Turkey Town, NC; Turkey Creek

Village, LA; Turkey City, TX. That is 36 percent less than the

median household income of all other households.

3. $50.11: The average cost for a Thanksgiving meal for 10, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

That $50 dollars goes a long way as the average individual

consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day (3,000 from

the meal and another 1,500 from snacking and drinks).

4. $310: The average amount of money consumers spending on Thanksgiving weekend shopping, according to the National Retail Federation. Despite the great sales and deep discounts on Black Friday, it is important to stick

to a budget. Americans rack up almost $52 million in debt

during the Holiday shopping season.

5. $28 Million: The amount of property losses due to cooking accidents on Thanksgiving Day. Cooking fires are

three times more likely on Thanksgiving than any other

day of the year. Be careful cooking those Turkeys.

Most importantly use this time to reflect on everything we are thankful for and spend time with the people we love.
