But do you know the origin of Christmas turkey?
The custom of eating turkey for Christmas dinner began in the United States in 1620. Turkey is a specialty of America. Before Europeans came to America, it was domesticated by Indians. The name of the turkey is called “Turkey” in English. Because Europeans think it looks like Turkish clothing: black and red. Europeans like to eat roast goose. After immigrating to the Americas, there was a requirement to eat geese before raising them well, so I ate turkey and found that turkey was better than geese. And there are many turkeys in North America. So roast turkey has become a major American dish and is indispensable for important holidays.
