Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Somewhere in the last 50 years it became a tradition that classic rock stations play Alice’s Restaurant Massacree at noon on Thanksgiving Day. And it has become a tradition for the last ten years that I post a video of Alice’s Restaurant Massacree here on Free Technology for Teachers. If you search for the song on Wolfram Alpha you will find a chart of Wikipedia traffic for the search term “Alice’s Restaurant.” So the question/ cultural history lesson for students is “why do people search for that term around Thanksgiving?”
Happy listening! Happy Thanksgiving!
