Surprisingly, the actual answer is only A. 46 million! According to their website, most Thanksgivings are multi family (or household) events, with four to five "households" at any one dinner. Makes sense. About 22 million turkeys are eaten on Christmas day.

In a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, who is it that invites not only themselves, but a number of friends to dinner at the Brown household;

A. Linus
B. Pigpen
C. Shermy
D. Peppermint Patty

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving: I saw that one only once, when it was first broadcast. And it wasn't one of my favorites. Which is why I only saw it once. So I don't remember who invited him/her self (and others). BUT! That sounds a lot like something  D. Peppermint Patty would do.

I think Jan & Dean did Surfin' Safari... oh wait, maybe that was Surfin' USA. Too many California surf songs with titles that all sound the same. How's about  B: The Little Old Lady from Pasadena.

I guess the key word here is "per capita". Here in the U.S. we consume lots of donuts, but we have a large population too. Canada has a fairly small population for the size of the country, but I don't recall hearing that Canadians are prolific donut eaters. France is known for its pastries but I'm gonna go with the unknown, and say  D: Bulgaria.

Yep, they were purple, back in the day.

Oreo filling: It's hard to imagine them coming in any other flavor but vanilla/white, back then. But I'll say C: Mint.

German language: I believe the answer is  C: Requires the capitalization of all nouns. I know, from visiting German based RCT3/theme park sim sites, that many words are capitalized. Whether they are nouns or not, I don't know.
