Even though 58% of those polled do NOT like cranberries, 90% reported serving them at Thanksgiving.
My interpretation of this data:
1. We're tradition-driven.
2. We're catering to the few.
3. You had leftovers of the cranberry sauce/relish/jelly (whatever you want to call it.)
4. This could very well be a snapshot of society-at-large. ;)
5. Cranberries just don't taste very good.
6. We all gained weight over Thanksgiving . . . wait! That's not related . . .
7. There is a conspiracy by cranberry growers to brainwash Americans into believing we MUST have cranberries at Thanksgiving.
Anyhow, these are just my biased, first-glance findings. Please share your own interpretation, I'd love to hear.
And as a little factoid, did you know that polls suggest that as many as 80% of Americans believe JFK's assassination was a conspiracy? Important information, people. Right here.
