Franksgiving

Written by Harvey Ackerman, Jr.


Ever heard of "Franksgiving"?

The year was 1939 when Franklin D. Roosevelt
changed the traditional day for Thanksgiving to a week earlier.

That year the National Dry Goods Association requested he move it back one week
to allow for a longer Christmas season.

Twenty three states celebrated Thanksgiving on the 23rd and twenty three states
waited until the 30th.

Many considered his proclamation an outrage and called it "Franksgiving".

By 1941, Roosevelt saw that the extended Christmas season caused no
increase in retail sales.

On November 26, 1941, he signed a bill that established the fourth Thursday in
November as the national Thanksgiving holiday.
