I love traditions. I'd like to share a bit of my Thanksgiving tradition with you the reader. Above is a picture of last year's Thanksgiving. The day before actually. That's Charles the Turkey.
Look at him go!
We like to cage the bird and pamper him for a few hours before....well...you know.
So we give him special treats, sing traditional Pilgimy sounding songs, dance around his cage and taunt him playfully with sticks.
Then, it's time for Bobo the clown to begin his slaying. So he slowly circles the cage. The bird senses something is wrong. And starts darting all over the cage. During this all the kids pull a feather from the Negro Indian head (total fucking heirloom and valuable as shit) and hand their feather to Bobo.
Bobo picks the smallest feather and the child that gave him that feather gets to hold the gobbler to the stump while Bobo chops his head off.
We then give the turkey to Nana who defeathers it and cleans it.
What traditions do YOU guys have?
