PHOENIX, Ariz. – The Board of Pilgrims accepts a buyout offer of 3.4 trillion dollars for the nearly 400 year-old American tradition of Thanksgiving, officials announced Sunday, November 4. The deal involves joint funds from the Halloween Industrial Corp. and, Global Holiday Giant, Christmas International.
