Once Upon A Time There Were Two Black Fridays

Until 1939, Thanksgiving was held in early December. But merchants wanted more time to peddle their Christmas wares so they lobbied President Franklin D. Roosevelt to move Turkey Day back a week. The change naturally angered much of the public and some refused to honor what they called "Franksgiving." As a result, for a very short time, America celebrated two Thanksgiving Days and two Black Fridays.
