Why does the media insist on inserting "Turkey Day" whenever they can? Is there something wrong with "Thanksgiving"?

Does the media find it offensive that people might give thanks, because giving implies there is a recipient of what's being given?

"Turkey Day", "Winter break", "School Holiday Program"... no nomenclature is safe from sterilization...

Agree! Turkey Day and X-mas sound so classless and drab.

Question: I find it shocking that people are brining turkeys — soaking the bird in salt water before cooking. Americans already eat too much salt. Where can I find a 20-plus-pound, low-salt turkey?

Thank you for your concern about my sodium intake. Don't you love people who need to voice their opinion about other peoples diets? I'll be brining my turkey this year with just a little more salt in honor of this jack wagon. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

"Santa" is offensive to people who don't celebrate "X-Mas".

"Holiday Festival", please.

My wife and I will be celebrating our 31st Thanksgiving together and have never cooked a turkey in the house. We cook them on our Weber charcoal grill year 'round. Cooking time is shorter, white meat wonderfully juicy, skin crisp and brown. And the turkey soup I make from the carcass and skin has such a great flavor!!
