As we all know, Thanksgiving is this month. You might now know, 248 million Turkeys were raised in the United States last year. Therefore, there will be many Turkeys on the table this Thanksgiving.
Another fun fact, Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the Turkey America's official bird. He thought the Bald Eagle had "bad moral character." Here are a few images we found inspiring for our own table settings-
