This Woman is Responsible for Making Thanksgiving a Holiday

While surfing the internet this morning for interesting conversation ideas, I found just that. A woman named Sarah is responsible for our Thanksgiving holiday.

Her full name is Sarah Josepha Hale. Not only did she spend twenty years trying to get Thanksgiving recognized, she was also the author of the nursery rhyme ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb.’

In 1863, she finally convinced Abraham Lincoln to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. So, thank you, Sarah Josepha Hale, for a day filled with football, turkey, pumpkin pie and parades. Plus, no work on Friday! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
