Most people know the idea of Thanksgiving but here are some surprising facts throughout history that you probably didn’t know. Thomas Jefferson refused to declare Thanksgiving a Holiday, and it wasn’t until Abraham Lincoln declared it as such, that it officially fell on fourth Thursday of every November. Another fun fact is that the first Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade used real animals inside of floats. Surprisingly, Benjamin Franklin originally wanted the turkey to be the official bird of the United States because he felt they were much more American than the bald eagle. Lastly, the hit Christmas song; Jingle Bells was originally a Thanksgiving song.
