Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year to spend time with loved ones and think about all the things we are thankful for.

We want to thank all our family, friends and acquaintances for a wonderful year here at WaterSignal. We want to thank you for your support, faith and trust in our services, and we look forward to another great year working with you.

Here are a few facts about Thanksgiving that may be new or interesting to you!

  • The first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621.
  • More than 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving.  (Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941).
  • U.S. farmers will also produce 735 million pounds of cranberries, which are native to the Americas. The top producers are Wisconsin and Massachusetts.
  • NBC Radio broadcast the first national Thanksgiving Day game in 1934, when the Detroit Lions hosted the Chicago Bears.
  • The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, first televised nationally in 1947, now draws some 44 million viewers-not counting the 3 million people who actually line the 2.5-mile Manhattan route.

Happy Thanksgiving!
