Happy Thanksgiving From Fade To Black

Jimmy is Off Air for the Thanksgiving holidays but here is a little bit of information I dug up over they years...
In 1621 the Pilgrims celebrated their first harvest in the New World. According to Edward Winslow, an attendee, it was a three day feast with 53 Pilgrims and 90 Indians. This first Harvest Festival would later be known in the United States as Thanksgiving. It has been a holiday since 1789, after a proclamation by George Washington. It was later declared a National Holiday by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War in 1863. Today Thanksgiving is celebrated by most; remembering that first Harvest Festival and as a time to give thanks.
According to most sources, the first thanksgiving took place sometime in November of 1621 between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at Plymouth.
In 1789 George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a holiday on the 4th Thursday of November. In 1863 it became a national holiday when Abraham Lincoln made a presidential proclamation during the Civil War. He set it to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November. From that point forward, each year a president would proclaim a date to be the national holiday and therefore it had a tendency to change each year. (according to NPR.org and wikipedia) This began to change when in 1933 there was a November that had 5 Thursday's in it. (Hmm.. just like THIS November.) So when traditionally, up to this point, Thanksgiving fell on the last November, (usually by presidential proclamation) which usually IS the 4th November of the month, there would actually be one more Thursday in November.
This particular November in 1933 two Thanksgivings ended up being observed when retailers had asked President Roosevelt to move the holiday up a week instead of having it as the last Thursday of the month.
A snippet of a letter from the Downtown Association of Los Angeles reads:
"You will appreciate the importance that an additional week incorporated in this great holiday season will have upon the distribution of activities of the entire United States and the added impetus that will be given thereby to the efforts of the administration and the N.R.A. to increase employment and purchasing power."
Roosevelt denied this request and as tradition had been in the past, Americans ate their Turkey on the last Thursday of the month. While he was still president, another 5 Thursday November rolled around again in 1939. Again retailers wanted it to be a week early to give people an extra week to do Christmas shopping. This time Roosevelt gave in. This actually caused a bit of an issue as many people felt this was just so those businesses could make more money. Some state Governors decided to have Thanksgiving on the last Thursday anyway. So for several years different states would celebrate Thanksgiving on different Thursdays. Then on Dec 26th, 1942, Congress passed a law that officially made Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday of November.
So go eat some Turkey.

New film: 'The End of Quantum Reality'
Tonight, our guest is Rick DeLano, the writer, producer, and host of the new film: 'The End of Quantum Reality'.
Rick has worked as an executive producer, and financial consultant in the music and film industries for more than 20 years. A writer and filmmaker, DeLano is best known for producing the controversial movie, THE PRINCIPLE, an endeavor that has rocked the scientific establishment by using its own discoveries to prove that the Earth is centrally located in the universe and sits in a favored position.
His newest production is the film, THE END OF QUANTUM REALITY, a work based on the discoveries of former MIT mathematics professor, Dr. Wolfgang Smith. The movie details how it is that Dr. Smith has solved the legendary “quantum enigma” - the paradox whereby Schrodinger's cat is both alive and dead or one particle can be at two places at once, something that Albert Einstein futilely spent the last 30 years of his life trying to understand.
