A Thanksgiving trivia quiz

During this blessed week, we here at The Big Quiz Thing give thanks for many things, both big and small, both quizzy and otherwise. But there's nothing we're more thankful for than trivia. Join us in our joy by taking our Thanksgiving-themed trivia quiz. (Want answers? Visit us on Twitter or Facebook.)

1. In 2013, for the first time ever—and most likely the last time ever—Thanksgiving coincided with what other holiday?

2. The first Thanksgiving parade (in 1920) was sponsored by what department store chain—which shut down in the ‘80s (so nope, it’s not Macy’s)?

3. What well-known Christmas song was originally written for a Thanksgiving celebration—back in the days when people spent Thanksgiving outdoors in the snow, and bells weren’t associated with Christmas?

4. Canada’s own version of Thanksgiving—known to some as L'action de graces—happens annually on a Monday, coinciding with what non-Thanksgiving U.S. holiday?

5. According to legend, at the end of the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever,” John Lennon mutters, “I buried Paul.” But Lennon claimed that he was actually saying the name of what traditional Thanksgiving food?

6. What’s larger: (a) the number of years between the Pilgrims and Natives’ First Thanksgiving meal, and the USA officially declaring Thanksgiving a national holiday; or (b) the number of years between the USA officially declaring it a national holiday and now?

7. True or false: The day after Thanksgiving—Black Friday—is indeed the most lucrative shopping day of the year.

8. Hebert’s Specialty Meats in Louisiana claims to be the originator of what rather gluttonous, cleverly named Thanksgiving dish that incorporates multiple types of meat via a technique known as “engastration”?

9. Which of the following foods were almost certainly not on the menu at the First Thanksgiving: turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, stuffing, cranberry sauce?

10. Which is not a real parade somewhere in the U.S.: (a) McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade (Chicago); (b) FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade (El Paso); (c) Berkshire Hathaway Parade of Thanksgiving Stars (Omaha); (d) 6abc Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade (Philadelphia)?

11. In Arlo Guthrie’s 18-minute musical monologue, “Alice’s Restaurant” (traditionally played on the radio on Thanksgiving), the protagonist is trapped in a hellish military bureaucracy, all because he commits what misdemeanor?

12.Counting Christmas Day itself, what’s the greatest number of possible days between Thanksgiving and Christmas?
