Thanksgiving day is America’s annual feast of travel and gluttony, here’s this year’s score; 45 million turkeys are eaten at Thanksgiving this year, that’s one sixth of all turkeys sold in the US each year. The american per capita consumption of turkeys has soared from 8.3 lbs. (3.76 kg) in 1975 to 13.8 lbs. (6.25 kg) in 2007.
As if this wasn’t enough to scare you, how about trains, planes and automobiles? Thanksgiving will see 43.4 million people traveling in one way or another, 38.9 million or 90% of those will take the car and 3.14 million the plane, whereas the average travel distance will be 601 miles (967 km).
