Impress your family with these Thanksgiving Day facts!
Brought to you by Stonewall Insurance Agency:
On the fourth Thursday in November, families across the U.S. gather to feast on turkey, watch football and gear up for Christmas by looking for Santa during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but did you ever wonder why these Thanksgiving traditions started?
The first Thanksgiving was held in the autumn of 1621 and included 50 Pilgrims and 90 Wampanoag Indians and lasted three days.
No turkey on the menu at the first Thanksgiving: Historians say that no turkey was served at the first Thanksgiving! What was on the menu? Deer or venison, ducks, geese, oysters, lobster, eel and fish.
No forks at the first Thanksgiving! The first Thanksgiving was eaten with spoons and knives — but no forks! That's right, forks weren't even introduced to the Pilgrims until 10 years later and weren't a popular utensil until the 18th century.!
Presidential pardon of a turkey: Each year, the president of the U.S pardons a turkey and spares it from being eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. The first turkey pardon ceremony started with President Truman in 1947. President Obama pardoned a 45-pound turkey named Courage, who has flown to Disneyland and served as Grand Marshal of the park's Thanksgiving Day parade!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM STONEWALL INSURANCE AGENCY!
We have seen a few new auto accident injuries in our office this week and it is a great reminder to check your insurance coverage. Do you have Med Pay? .
Often called “Med-Pay” for short, Medical Payments Coverage part of most (but not all) auto insurance policies which provides at least $5,000 coverage for the insured driver and passengers to pay for injuries sustained in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. Although the coverage in Colorado is mandatory, there is a provision for consumers who do not want med-pay coverage to opt-out in writing. If you have Med Pay, treatment including chiropractic, massage and physical therapy will most likely be covered. If you do not have med-pay, your health insurance may cover costs. .
One of the main benefits of Med-pay is covering your injuries if you are at fault or if you hit a stationary object (ie. a guard rail or pole). Another benefit of med pain is immediate coverage of injuries. Yes, if the other driver is at fault, they are ultimately responsible for your medical bills, however this can take some time to settle - in some cases a few years. 📷 is an actual single car roll over accident provided by @cocgkm
