Default Interesting Triva Question

Which President moved Thanksgiving up one week to help stimulate the Christmas Shopping economy?

Theodore Roosevelt

John F. Kennedy

Dwight D. Eisenhower

Franklin D. Roosevelt

None of the above, it was never changed.

Post your guess if you want, I will post the answer this evening. FYI...I guessed wrong.

Allegedly, who was the first president to "pardon" the official White House turkey*...

(*No, I don't mean the past pardoning of many members of Congress~ )
