Holiday By the Numbers

How much turkey will we eat?

The census bureau, the know of all things numeric, released its 2006 figures for Thanksgiving.

The highlights:
  • 265 million turkeys, almost one per man, woman and child
  • 664 million pounds of cranberries
  • 1.6 billion pounds of sweet potatoes

Happy eating!
