Happy Thanksgiving From Midwest Medical Aesthetics

Who’s pumped for Thanksgiving? I know I am. I usually write information about topics related to health and aesthetics but this holiday means a lot to me and it means a lot of things – it means seeing friends and family, having our traditional turkey dinner and of course, watching football.
Here are some interesting facts about Thanksgiving:

  • The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade began in 1924 in New York City and is the second oldest parade in America, tied with America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit. Philadelphia has an older parade, originally known as Gimbel’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, then the 6abc Boscov’s Thanksgiving Parade, and now the 6abc IKEA Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • 88% of Americans eat turkey on Turkey Day. Around 20% of America’s turkeys – 46 million – are eaten on Thanksgiving Day alone. That works out to about 736 million pounds of turkey for Thanksgiving alone!
  • Americans eat over 400 million pounds of cranberries each year. 80 million pounds of that are during Thanksgiving week alone – meaning about 20% of America’s cranberries are eaten during Thanksgiving.
  • Benjamin Franklin believed the turkey should be the national bird of America. He wrote disparagingly of the bald eagle, saying about the turkey: “For the truth the Turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America.”
  • Thanksgiving football goes back to 1876, when the Intercollegiate Football Association held its championship on Thanksgiving Day.
  • The first NFL Thanksgiving Day game was held in 1920, when the Akron Pros routed the Canton Bulldogs 7-0.
  • There are three cities around the country which take the name turkey: Turkey, Texas; Turkey Creek; Louisiana; and Turkey, North Carolina.

But there is a deeper meaning to Thanksgiving. Gratitude. Giving thanks is one of the easiest and most rewarding virtues we can cultivate – just two simple words brings out the best in us – let’s be honest, there’s nothing like saying “Thank You” and really meaning it.

As Americans, we have so much to be thankful for. I know this Thanksgiving, from every corner of my being, I’m going to give thanks for my Family, my Friends, my Great Patients, my Staff and the Men and Woman that fight for our country and our freedom.

I hope you and your family have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving.

  • The photo gallery at the top of the home page displays a smaller, more proportional thumbnail image for featured blog posts along with a summary of the post for quick access.
  • Twitter and Facebook buttons have been added to each post so you can share the content easily with your favorite social networks.
  • After you finish reading a post, four other posts are also suggested at the bottom of the page so you can move easily through the content on our site.

Keep Fit During the Holidays

The holiday season is about to start, and soon you will be tempted to have just one more dessert or skip your workout to attend a party. While it’s easy to shrug off your workout during this time of year, Self magazine suggests the following for keeping your routine in check:

  • Exercise in the morning before things get too busy or you get distracted.
  • Prepare for a workout by packing your gym bag the night before so you don’t forget anything.
  • Have just 15 minutes? Fit in a workout by increasing the intensity of your workout in a shorter amount of time.
  • Exercise during commercials while you’re watching TV.
  • Start a new habit of doing one plank, squat, etc. before you go to bed each night.

How do you stay in shape during the holidays? Let us know by leaving a comment.

What Is LED Light Therapy?
