There's actually a number of interesting stories behind why Thanksgiving is the most important and popular dish during Thanksgiving. We don't only enjoy our turkey on Thanksgiving... We have it for Xmas, Passover, and other family gatherings too. Its something that most of us find easy to make for a harvest festival. Its huge and able to feed a big table of people :) Back in the days, which was Queen Elizabeth's days, they used to celebrate a harvest festival with roasted goose. This was a very big celebration in England, but since the Pilgrims from England arrived in America, roasted goose were then replaced by roasted turkey. As to wild turkey were abundantly found as compared to geese. Thats when a new tradition of serving a turkey at Thanksgiving celebrations got started. The tradition of turkey is also rooted in the "History of Plymouth Plantation", which is a book that was written. It also has something to do with the British during the War Of Independence...

Th pilgrms and "indans" ate turkey at their feast.
