A Turkey Day Trivia Trilogy

Moments are often once in a lifetime, but with photographs, they can be everlasting.

Trivia time #1

Rain or shine

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is as dependable as a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving since it began in 1924. That's because it's only been canceled three times ever. In which years was it canceled, and why?

Trivia time #2

Pardon me

Prior to President George H.W. Bush, U.S. Presidents only sporadically pardoned Thanksgiving turkeys. Who was the first to spare a turkey from its holiday fate?

Happy Thanksgiving. We'll see you tomorrow :-)
