Thanksgiving at City Hall a 2-day holiday

Posted By
COVINGTON, Ky. -- “Happy Thanksgiving” a few hours early from the folks here at City Hall - exactly 400 years after the first Thanksgiving celebration was allegedly held in Virginia ... 230 years after President Washington proclaimed the first nationwide celebration ... and 80 years after President (Franklin D.) Roosevelt affixed a permanent date to the national holiday (changing it two years later with the help of Congress to its current “fourth Thursday” status).
By the way, City offices in Covington will be closed both Thursday and Friday - meaning hurry down today if you have business at City Hall, otherwise we’ll see you Monday.
EDITOR’s NOTE (a la “tips”): Make sure you cook that turkey all the way through (but leave the venison a little “pink” inside) ... drumsticks are the best part of a turkey ... yams and sweet potatoes are not the same thing ... serve can-molded cranberry sauce with trepidation ... forgo the TV in favor of family conversation ... and don’t drink and drive.
