Thanksgiving 2021 updates – How the turkey’s history started in the Southern Hemisphere with DINOSAURS

THAT turkey many families sat down to eat for Thanksgiving dinner this year has a surprising relative.

Tyrannosaurus rex and turkeys shared a common ancestor about 190 million years ago, NBC News reports.

“In the Late Cretaceous, the ancestors of modern turkeys were most likely in the Southern Hemisphere,” the outlet notes. But continental drift and migration brought them to North America, where modern turkeys still live in the wild throughout the United States.

Meanwhile, viewers on the streets of New York City and at home enjoyed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, which didn’t seem to have any major balloon mishaps.

Plus, former President Donald Trump might have just hinted at another presidential run in his Thanksgiving message to the country.

“A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again – and we will all do it together,” Trump said in a statement. 

“America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!”
