Turkey has been a mainstay on the Thanksgiving Day table for centuries. Benjamin Franklin even suggested that the national bird,instead of the eagle, be an alternative to the Thanksgiving turkey.



Thank goodness he didn't have enough influence to make that happen. One thing for sure, turkeys wish they weren't that important during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

There seems to be a trend as people are substituting other foods or meats as the main dish for the Thanksgiving meal. It's possible that you are not having a large gathering this holiday, so a 15-20lb turkey is not practical.

There are a number of people that are choosing the vegetarian lifestyle. For these people the holiday is still celebrated just minus the turkey or other meats.
