Other fun facts discovered from the multi-selection survey include:
—44% said pumpkin was their favorite pie.
—64% of men said they were looking forward to watching football on TV, with 43% of women preferring the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.
—"Family" beat out "food" as the favorite part of the holiday — but it was close 68% to 53%.
