Did you know that Thanksgiving is America’s second favorite holiday?1 The special day offers something for everyone. You can enjoy family togetherness, feasting, football, school plays, parades, gratitude, and, of course, shopping. If you’re a traditionalist, you serve a classic meal with oven-roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and pie. According to a Huffington Post poll, pumpkin pie is America’s favorite although apple, pecan, and other flavors have fans, too.2

But, not everyone shares the same Thanksgiving dinner preferences.2 Younger generations prefer ham to turkey, reports Yahoo.com, and Millennials tend to leave cranberry sauce at the store.1 Tastes vary regionally, too. A poll from Fivethirtyeight.com found folks in the..:3

  • East prefer squash, cauliflower, and pumpkin and apple pie.
  • Southeast prefer mac and cheese, canned cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie, and pumpkin and pecan pie.
  • Mid-South prefer cornbread, sweet potato pie, and pumpkin and pecan pie.
  • Midwest prefer green beans, green bean casserole, and pumpkin and cherry pie.
  • West prefer salad, and pumpkin and cherry pie.
