We’re going to do this old school Vincent Nigel-Murray style. Did you know that….
- Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national animal but was outvoted when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson chose the bald eagle?
- Over an estimated 150 million hot dogs will be consumed today. That’s roughly one dog for every two people in the US? (Despite the fact that I am thoroughly disgusted by this factoid…I post it anyway. Vegetarians yyyaaaaasss!)
- The Fourth of July was not declared a national holiday until 1941?
- Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826?
