FRECKLES' PICK - WINNER
Don’t volunteer at a soup kitchen on Thanksgiving …
Even if you’re inspired to give back this Thanksgiving by volunteering at a soup kitchen or food bank, charity experts suggest that you stay home – and choose to volunteer on a different day. Many charities – especially small ones – can be overwhelmed when a bunch of first-time volunteers show up. It takes time to train people. And on Thanksgiving, there’s just no time. The best way to help is to make a long-term commitment to volunteering … and not start that commitment on Thanksgiving Day. (USA Today)
America’s Favorite Thanksgiving Pie Is…?
While a lot of us are looking forward to turkey and stuffing on Thursday, many of us can’t wait until the end of the meal for all those delicious holiday desserts. Of course for many that will include some sort of pie, and there’s one pie that’s likely to be on most people’s tables.
According to a poll by Delta Dental, Pumpkin Pie is the by far America’s favorite Thanksgiving pie, a choice of 36% of people. It’s so popular that more than twice the amount of people chose pumpkin over its nearest competitor, Pecan Pie (17%). As for the other pies, they rank in popularity as follows:
- Apple Pie (14%)
- Sweet Potato Pie (10%)
- Chocolate Pie (9%)
- Lemon Meringue Pie (4%)
- Cherry Pie (3%)
- Blueberry Pie (3%)
- Strawberry Pie (2%)
- Other (2%)
Older adults seem to favor Pumpkin Pie the most (41%), and while it’s still Gen-Xers’ favorite, it does find the least support in that generation, with only 28% saying it’s their favorite. Geographically, the West is the most likely to pick pumpkin as their top choice (44%), while the South is the least likely to say it's their fave (31%).
