The centerpiece of contemporary Thanksgiving in the United States and in Canada is Thanksgiving dinner, informally called turkey dinner, a large meal generally centered on a large roasted turkey.
Because of its role in the holidays, the turkey is also associated with generosity, gratitude, family, and friendship. Like the holidays themselves, the turkey brings people together to share in the spirit of love, cooperation, and thankfulness.
Everyone is welcome at the table, which is the cornerstone of the very idea of the American Thanksgiving: to put aside one’s differences and share a meal.
The consumption of turkey on Thanksgiving is so ingrained in American culture that each year since 1947, the National Turkey Federation has presented a live turkey to the President of the United States prior to each Thanksgiving. These turkeys were initially eaten for the President’s Thanksgiving dinner. But since 1989, the presented turkeys have typically been given a mock pardon to great fanfare and sent to a park to live out the rest of their usually short natural lives.
This a warm inviting card for the holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas.
