Happy Thanksgiving! At bb7, we are grateful for so much: our people, our clients, our partners, our audience, our projects and our success.
Ever wonder why we eat turkey (about 46 million birds in the US for Thanksgiving alone) and pumpkin pie for the November holiday? Americans started eating turkey and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving in the mid-1800s (Lincoln made the holiday official in the 1860s). A magazine editor and “Thanksgiving crusader” named Sarah Josepha Hale read about a 1621 feast between the pilgrims and a tribe. She campaigned for over 30 years for an annual holiday to commemorate the event. Hale published recipes for turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie which started traditions that had nothing to do with the colonists.
November’s boggler is inspired by pumpkin pie. Can you solve it?
