As someone who is new to living a zero-waste life, Halloween is kind of a daunting holiday. Between the one-time use costumes, cheap decor, and individually plastic-wrapped candies, there is plenty of potential waste in celebrating All Hallows Eve. But I still love finding ways to celebrate the season, so this year, I made an effort to enjoy the holiday using only natural or re-usable items I already had on hand.
It’s amazing how much can happen in the span of a year. Thanksgiving got me reflecting on all the things that have happened since last year when husband and I spent the holiday road tripping through upstate New York and celebrating Thanksgiving dinner in Niagara Falls.
It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I thought it only fitting I take a few minutes to talk about the holiday’s top bird.
While pretty much everyone has their attention on how to cook turkeys – and believe me, I have seen some absolutely delicious looking recipes out there – I wanted to get some insight into turkeys themselves – what do they eat, what’s their day to day like, what do they like to do for fun, and how did they become to be the animal associated with this American holiday.
