    Are you having a turkey this christmas?

    I doubt if I will. I saw what is called a 'turkey saddle' in other words a turkey breast in Tesco and it was 30! Yes, thirty of your English Pounds for not even the entire bird! And you can bet turkeys will be at even more eye-watering prices in Waitrose and Marks and Spencer.

    I think I'll wait and see if the price goes down (a lot!) or wait closer to The Day to see what lands on my lawn...
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Though how recently has the eating of turkey become a part of the tradition of Christmas? I know in days of old that goose, or even swan in the case of the nobility, was the bird to eat on christmas day.

    It's the test of sanity between getting in early at a known price and freezing it, or waiting in the hope the price falls and risk further increases. Be aware that the retail industry is using the poor harvests as an excuse to raise food prices, again...

    No - never have turkey for Christmas. We always have Roast beef on Christmas Day and 5 different seafoods on Christmas Eve. I host Thanksgiving every year and I find that making a big turkey again only a few weeks later is too much work

    No, because I am a vegetarian myself and in The Netherlands it is not really a tradition to have it at Christmas.

    This tradition we will follow on one of the Christmas Days:
