One in 20 People Hate Thanksgiving

 A new survey found 5% of us enjoy NOTHING about Thanksgiving . . . the food, the football, the family infighting.  None of it.  And that doesn't even include the 4% who said they don't celebrate Thanksgiving.

Here are eight more random Thanksgiving stats . . .

1.  75% of us tend to eat the same foods every year.  We don't mix it up very much.

2.  88% of us usually spend Thanksgiving with family.  Around 35% will be eating with at least one friend at the table this year.  And 7% are spending it with a neighbor.

3.  41% of people have been looking forward to Thanksgiving ALL YEAR.

4.  What time will you eat Thanksgiving dinner this year?  42% of people will start at 2:00 P.M. or earlier . . . and only 11% will wait until 6:00 P.M. or later.

5.  The average Thanksgiving will include 7 to 9 people.  The next most-common answer was 4 to 6 people . . . 5% of us are eating with at least TWENTY other people . . . and a sad 3% said they usually eat Thanksgiving dinner alone. 

6.  Woman are more than twice as likely to say they do ALL of the cooking on Thanksgiving.  22% said it's true, compared to just 9% of men.


And men are almost twice as likely to do NO cooking.  35% of men said they don't help at all, compared to 19% of women.


7.  The biggest bump in traffic over Thanksgiving is TONIGHT, according to Google . . . you'll find way more people on the roads than you would on a normal Wednesday night.

8.  And finally, 23% of us make sure we wear stretchy pants on Thanksgiving, just so we can eat more.
