All About the Thanksgiving Turkey

Nov 14, 2013

The Thanksgiving Turkey does a lot more than go "gobble, gobble." Kidzworld is here to tell you who this holiday figure is all about!

Thanksgiving Turkey - It's All Gobbledy Good

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful - thankful for a loving family, thankful for a warm bed to sleep in, and thankful for an allowance to buy a new skateboard or those cool Converse basketball shoes with! Well, the Thanksgiving Turkey is just as thankful as we are about his totally cool job and all the awesome perks that come with it!

Thanksgiving Turkey - What He's Thankful For

This turkey used to live with a bunch of other turkeys on a farm, but it was actually more like a jail. But many years ago, he got pardoned (set free) by the President of the United States and was sent to a petting zoo in Virginia. In 2005, he got to move to Disneyland in sunny California and now takes part in Disneyland's annual Thanksgiving Day parade!

Thanksgiving Turkey - What He's Not So Thankful For

The Thanksgiving turkey isn't the prettiest bird on the block. With a piece of flabby skin hanging from his chin and another piece growing across his beak, he could never win first prize in a beauty pageant! He also suffers from bumpy skin that even a strong moisturizer can't cure.

Thanksgiving Turkey - How Much $$$ Does the Turkey Make?

The Thanksgiving Turkey doesn't get paid - but that's his choice. He told his bosses to donate his paychecks to charities like food banks, shelters and clothing drives instead! Besides, who needs money when you're already living at the happiest place on earth?

Everyone should be entitled to their own opinion, not damned to hell for having their own beliefs. I will admit I haven't ready everything in this topic, but so far, I'm agreeing with Teh-Skittlez. I'm not a religious person, I'm not saying anyone is "wrong", but I do think we should live our lives to the fullest, because the truth is, we don't know what comes after this life and therefore, doesn't it make sense that we should make the most of the one we have? The things we accomplish and the people we build relationships with may not matter after we're gone, and probably won't be recorded in any history books, but does that make them any less important to us?

You are the first person I have known (other than myself) to say rubber duckie. :D "lelnah" wrote: Which is more? Are humans harmful more than helpful? Or helpful more than harmful? Well, the "help" humans provide are for our own race, to cure ourselves from illnesses and build ourselves bigger buildings, etc. But meanwhile, we are damaging our planet and destroying the habitats/food resources of other animals. I would have to say we are harmful more than helpful, in terms of what we do to the earth and the creatures around us.
