We’ve talked about people named Easter, Fourth (of July), Halloween, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year…what about Thanksgiving? I mean, we’ve already met Dr. Happy Thanksgiving, but are there more?
Yes, at least a few dozen more. As you’d expect, nearly all were born in late November. Here are three examples:
- Grayce Thanksgiving Learned, born in California on November 24, 1886
- Thanksgiving “Givie” Phillips, born in Missouri on November 26, 1891
- Mildred Thanksgiving Arendt, born in Arkansas on November 30, 1911
The two most recent Thanksgivings I found were both born in the 1990s.
