Only in Alabama: Here’s Some Holiday Cheer
While Thanksgiving is traditionally the holiday where everyone is "expected" to have a turkey for dinner, some people choose to have turkey for Christmas, too. So, I decided to go ahead and post this. Many people don't believe me when I tell them this story.
The Saturday after Thanksgiving, my family had dinner at my house. My niece and I had to go to the store for a few items. As we were returning to the car, my niece let out a minor scream and jumped back a bit. When I asked what had her so excited, she said the bird in the car in front of us scared her. "Bird?" I asked, and she told me to lean in her direction. When I did, I could hardly believe my eyes.
I just didn't believe that what I saw really was what I saw.
Yep, it was! I decided to get a closer look. I just wanted to see if it was an elaborate toy or something. So, I pulled into the parking space next to the car to see if the turkey would move. Boy, did it!
There are some things you hope you never see in life, and then there are some things that you never even imagine seeing in life. This was one of those for me. Oh well. This turkey survived Thanksgiving. I wonder if it will be so luck for Christmas.
