Welcome to the Festival of Frugality #257!
This week’s Festival will be the Thanksgiving Football Edition! Yes, here in the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving in late November, and many of us mark this day by eating a big meal, traditionally with Turkey. For some of us, having the football games on television is a part of the whole experience with family. For some others, it’s not the case at all. Regardless, the football games have found their way to being a part of the holiday here in the States.
With that introduction, here are this week’s selections:
Did you know that Thanksgiving games have been a part of the league since it started in 1920?
