Thanksgiving Map

I think this is an interesting map because it shows that people all over our country value different things about Thanksgiving.   Part of this probably has to do with the location of the state, because for example I’m from Pennsylvania, and our state’s top Googled meal is a potato; whereas, in Wyoming, Idaho,  Colorado and Nevada, the most Googled meal is frogs.  I know for a fact that frogs will not be a part of my Thanksgiving meal at all, and I also know that many of my friends are the same way, in which case one would assume that most of my friends are from a condensed geographical area.  I like this map because it gives me a chance to explore how people view Thanksgiving all around our country, and when paired with the geographical locations, this map has a lot to tell us about Thanksgiving in America.
