Last-Minute Turkey Tips
  • Turkey thaws faster in ice-cold water (about 30 minutes per pound). Keep in air-tight wrapper while thawing, and change out water every 30 minutes to be extra food-safe.
  • Remember: Average 15-lb turkey should roast for about 4 hours. Internal temperature should be 170-180°.

Black Friday

Black Friday refers to the day following Thanksgiving which has evolved into the biggest shopping day in the US. Americans, having been together with family for a full day and having the day off, flood the stores en masse presumably to get a leg up on their Christmas shopping - and to get a break from all of that "family time". It is called black because it is the first day of the year that many retailers will show a profit; they are out of the "red" and into the "black".
Black Friday Deaths

This year's Black Friday showed a three percent increase in retail sales and a death toll of three.
