Thanksgiving Day becomes an official holiday, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is published, the NHL is formed, "Casablanca" premieres, and the Concorde lands for the last time, all on this day.
1922: Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, who would go on to create the "Peanuts" comic strip in 1950, is born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Schulz drew nearly 18,000 strips during the strip's nearly 50-year run between 1950 and 2000, becoming one of the most influential cartoonists of all time. At its height, "Peanuts" was published daily in 2,600 papers in 75 countries, in 21 languages. Schulz died of a heart attack at the age of 77 on Feb. 12, 2000.
