Facts and figures for Thanksgiving 2021

Turkeytime_456pxMost Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving Thursday. Unlike last year, when covid-19 cases were high, more people will be gathering with friends and family.

Last year, I ordered a duck dinner from an expensive French restaurant. I wasn’t going out much and was ordering all my groceries for pick up.

This year, once again, I’m not traveling to Madrid to visit my daughter and her family for Thanksgiving due to the pandemic. It makes me sad, but I hope to travel there in May, as was my pre-pandemic custom.

I got lucky Monday and found a duck and pecan pie at the co-op when I went to get Thanksgiving Day fixings. Of course, I’ll add my favorites: mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing.

This year, 88 percent of Americans will be having turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner. The average cost of a 10-person Thanksgiving dinner is $46.90. The average number of guests, including household members, is nine.
