I'm cheerfully taking the day off today (and tomorrow too!), and I'm writing this a week in advance as I wait on the final keynote at PASS 2008 to start. Was debating whether to write something for Thanksgiving, and thought I'd just browse a little to see what I could find, the first interesting thing from Wikipedia was that apparently the first Thanksgiving was in St Augustine, not Plymouth! What the heck did they teach me in school?
Read what Ben Franklin thought about the turkey (not what you probably expect) and here's a list of Thanksgiving trivia.
