Here are five random Thanksgiving stats for you . . .

 

 

1.  Women prefer white meat, and men prefer dark.  But it's pretty close for both.  57% of women said they go for white meat, while 51% of men said they prefer dark.

 

 

2.  40% of Thanksgiving dinners will have a kids' table.  But at a third of those, at least one ADULT will end up sitting with the kids.

 

 

3.  12% of us are doing a "Friends-giving," where you eat with friends instead of family.

 

 

4.  8% of us are planning to have Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant.

 

 

5.  And the two topics we'll be avoiding at dinner are money and politics.  28% said talking about finances should be off-limits, and 30% said politics should be.  But about 25% of us expect to talk about the election anyway.
