Oh, Thankgiving. Turkey, mashed potatoes, yam, pumpkin pie, family, friends, football and feasts across the country.

It all adds up to bickering between family members, Friday trips to the gym and ... the biggest day in Instagram history?

According to the popular photo-sharing service's blog, Thursday saw more photo uploads in a single day than ever before.

Instagram users combined to upload over 10 million photos on Thanksgiving including a record rate of 226 photos per second at 12:40 p.m., PST.

It more than doubled the total uploaded using the service, which was officially aquired by Menlo Park-based Facebook in September.
