Throwback Thursday with Bell Plumbing and Heating

by bpsupp19274

We recently sent out our Fall 2013 customer newsletter (feel free to sign up here) and we had the opportunity to chat with a long time customer who took the time to elaborate on our “Did You Know” section.

It turns out that we might have misinformed our customers that Franklin D. Roosevelt first worked with Congress to set the official holiday of Thanksgiving as the 4th Thursday to extend the holiday shopping season as depression recovery.

Here is the rest of the story according to Chris C.:

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln was the first President to officially recognize the holiday as the last Thursday of November.  It continued this way until 1939 when President Roosevelt changed it to the third Thursday of November to allow for more Christmas shopping time during the Great Depression.

(Chris remembers this clearly as he was living in South Dakota where they didn’t agree with the change and the holiday was nationally recognized on the third Thursday and also recognized the traditional 4th Thursday, including the holiday deals not starting until the day after the traditional Thanksgiving date.)

In 1941, Congress declared the official National Holiday of Thanksgiving as the 4th Thursday of the November.

We appreciate hearing from Chris and were even more entertained when he recalled that we had been servicing his Denver Area home since 1958.  He even recalled  the first technician to serve him was Leonard.  After further investigation it turns out that he was most likely speaking about Leonard Bell.

Did You Know….

Leonard Bell was in the 2nd generation of the Bell Family and was a remodeling estimator.  It’s true we have been doing bathroom remodels & kitchen remodels for over 50 years, and this fact will not need a retraction!
