It's not overrated. The men have smegma free cocks.

I like turkey, but white meat only. One of my relatives won’t eat it, she considers it Peasant food.

It is true that it’s kind of bland, but since most people only have it once or twice a year, it’s worth it for the tradition aspect.

I say it all the time: I much prefer roast chicken.

Turkey has become a common protein in my lifetime.

I dropped it from Thanksgiving in favor of duck or goose. The prep is a blast.

My best setup was an ancient electric roaster on the basement washer with another on top of the dryer. It freed up oven space.

Turkey is always better with prunes stuffed with cod.

I have been a vegetarian since I was 13 years old (I turned 30 this year), but I can say that, as a child, it was probably my favorite meat. It is better than chicken. I remember eating leftover turkey for several days after every Thanksgiving–I'd put a little butter, salt, and pepper on it, reheat, and it was a very satisfying meal. As an adolescent, I came to the conclusion that, if I couldn't bring myself to kill an animal, then I didn't have any business eating one—so I gave it up.

I don't like turkey.

Also, I find it weird that Americans eat turkey for Thanksgiving and then a month later eat turkey again for Christmas. Why didn't you pick something else for Thanksgiving?

The breast meat is barely edible, the rest of it I wouldn’t touch. Gamey.

We don't necessarily eat turkey at Christmas in America. Ham and roast beef are also popular. Turkey is only traditional/required on Thanksgiving.

Turkey is comparatively inexpensive per pound, you can feed a lot of people with one, and you don't need a lot of cooking skill to prepare a reasonably edible result. Anyway, Thanksgiving isn't about eating your all-time favorite food, it's about eating traditional food.

You keep playing with the nuns -I'll chat up Andy from R22 and enjoy eating whatever he feeds me.

Everyone I know thinks of family-roasted turkey as the bookend to commercial Christmas fruitcake.

As others have said, turkey has sort of fallen out of favor in the US for Christmas. Most people choose another big protein item, like beef or ham. But I do remember when I was younger that turkey was more common on Christmas.

Turkey is sort of "required" for Thanksgiving since it's part of the tradition of the origin story. And don't forget that while the vast majority of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, a sizable and growing minority does NOT celebrate Christmas.

We have turkey for Thanksgiving but prime rib roast a xmas.

I think turkey is delicious and it all year. Depends on seasonings though. Deep fried is the fucking bomb.

Her whole argument that at the end of the day by not offering turkey may cause some guests to drop off the list, and thereby cut costs - The same logic goes the other way around. I wouldn't have invited her stingy cheap ass in the first place.

There was just a whole thread about something like this on Reddit recently where some Thanksgiving guests at a certain household showed up with to go containers.

She would have never been invited to my home to begin with.
