Does turkey really taste better the day after Thanksgiving? Just thought I'd ask. :wacko:

I thought in the UK it was a duck or goose for Christmas. :)

Turkey is much much more common. You do hear talk of people having goose, but I;ve never met any - the most common non-turkey meal I;ve encountered is a nut roast for vegetarians :-(

It'll be turkey in my house

Here in the U.S. I don't know if there's any #1 main entree for Christmas, although turkey has been gaining in popularity. Ham seems to be a pretty popular choice.
In hispanic neighborhoods they tend to wolf down as many different kinds of tamales as possible... then finish it off with a Christmas tamale for dessert (sweet, with raisins).

Just make sure you avoid any Wild Turkey for the holidays... as this Sacramento reporter recently learned the hard way.

Oh that's brilliant. I wonder if the reporter was wearing black, and so (combined with the likely red light on the camera) looked like a big turkey.

(I have a colleague who wears brown a lot, and is often targetted by geese in nesting season, so the idea isn't as off the wall as it may seem)

tamales sound lovely (weell the savoury idea anyhow). I'd never heard of them before. I'll have to look out for them (maybe next time I'm in London)
