Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. In this year, it will be on the 25th thus making it barely 10 days to the big celebration.
Turkey becomes equivalent to Thanksgiving. So why it is so?
According to the telltales of history,it says:
Queen Elizabeth of 16th century England was chowing down on roast goose during a harvest festival. When news was delivered to her that the Spanish Armada had sunk on it way to attack her beloved England, the queen was so pleased that she order a second goose to celebrate the great news. Thus, the goose became the favorite bird at harvest time in England. When the Pilgrims arrived in America from England, roasted turkey replaced roasted goose as the main cuisine because wild turkeys were more abundant and easier to find than geese.
That explains why.
