All About the Thanksgiving Turkey

Nov 05, 2015

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

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!

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!

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.

How Much Money 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?

Hmm I'm not a big fan of goodbye's. I prefer to say until next time. Well Ari, the time has come. I think we've become really close friends recently and it's a real shame that I left it so late. All them years I could have talked to you and I go and leave it till the last few months. :/ What can I say? You are one of the most genuine and kindest people I have met on this site. The fact that you became one of my closest friends within a week says it all. You'll be greatly missed by so many people here, including all the mods. Hey, I reckon I might even miss you a little bit :D You're an amazing person and you're gonna go really far in life. Good luck with school and the dreaded A levels, you'll do brilliantly I'm sure. All I ask is that you remember me when you're up there at the top getting your name written in the history books.  I also want to apologise as I know how difficult it is going to be for you to cope without me. I'm (quite) sure you'll be fine but I'm sorry anyway for how awful it's going to be for you. Don't miss me too much! P.s. I'm still waiting for that selfie :D . .. ... Until next time Ari...
