The American Farm Bureau Federation announced on November 10 that the cost of Thanksgiving dinner is up this year by 13%. The average cost for the turkey and all the fixings for 10 people will be just over $49.
In fact, prices of fresh turkeys are up by 22%; pumpkin pie mix is up 15%; the green peas are up 16%; even the whipped cream is up 15%.
Today’s paychecks don’t stretch that far. Don’t pretend we have something to be thankful for!
