I’m going to murder a turkey…

26 Nov

Thanksgiving is a great time to be in America… unless you are a Turkey. Pretty much everyone buys their own 20 pound Turkey and the secret methods on how you best cook the big bird have been handed down through the generations. In New Zealand we don’t celebrate thanksgiving, and I know for a fact from my previous work with animals that New Zealand Turkeys are indeed very grateful. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if after reading this blog, several families of American Turkey’s attempted to emigrate to our fine southern shores.

Of-course thanksgiving is as much about Turkeys as Christmas is about Santa Claus… not much at all really. Traditions are great when they serve to connect and remind us about what we truly value. Otherwise it’s just like eating a much bigger chicken.
