27.12.2011 | 火雞聯想

[#1278] 話咁快又過咗聖誕, 大家繼續放假, 定係返緊工(等新年長假來臨)?? 噚晚嘅一餐烤雞, 係抄~~飽~~的, 食到我仲飽到依家!! 我唔係基督教徒, 所以就算有咩聖誕大餐, 呢世人都冇食超過三次火雞囉.. 係就係知道聖誕要吃火雞, 就算冇火雞都要食啲燒雞應下節, 呵呵!! 查實, 有冇人知道聖誕食火雞嘅來源同意義呢??

講到呢度, 今時今日過聖誕嘅真正意義又何存呢?? 好多人(尤其非基督教徒)都係多一日假期, 又或者唔理好醜湊下熱鬧+感染佳節氣氛+搞下派對+交換禮物+通宵狂歡.. 諗深一層, 其實應該係同你嘅至親至愛一同度過, 一同分享快樂喜悅, 係唔係?? 今年嘅聖誕, 你有冇做到呢?? :)
[#1278] can't believe christmas is already over, are you still in holiday or already back to work (but anticipating the new year holiday)?? the roast chicken meal i had last night was really a bloating bomb, i am still so stuffed up till now, it's so scary!! i am not a christian, therefore even if i am feasting on christmas, i don't think i have turkey for more than three times in my life.. yet i know it's a ritual to have turkey for christmas dinner, even if there's none, at least we have a roast chicken, haha!! but anyone cares to share the origin and reason behind why we are eating turkey on christmas??

having that said, how many of us (non christians especially) still know the actual purpose of christmas nowadays?? to many people it may just be another day of holiday, or perhaps join the crowd to feel the festive mood, go down to parties, exchange some presents and get wild whole night long.. but to think a little deeper, it should be a time we share the joy of happiness with our loved ones right?? so, have you done this during christmas this year?? :)

  4. Focus is always on the turkey and not chicken becoz it holds 'tur key' to the celebration.

  6. I seriously have no idea how do turkey come about for christmas, but then again that's really not the main thing for christmas...

    christmas is to remember the day that Jesus was born into this world. It was a good news for everyone as the messiah that has been promised has finally arrived. thus everyone is sharing the good news and joy with each other.

    again, merry christmas everyone :D

  9. Christmas to me and my Quay Lo is about bonding with family and friends, enjoying good food, good company and have a great time togethe. Our Christmas was magical filled with joy and love:D Every year my My Quay Lo baked the turkey but we got lazy last year bought it. It tasted terrible so this year he baked it again. It tasted way better! From what I understand, the reason why we eat turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas is because of Scrooge's gift of a Christmas turkey to the Cratchit family. The birds were associated with the working class and poor immigrants, who often received turkeys from charities during the holidays.

  10. Hmm I'm not a Christian myself but if I'm not mistaken, turkey is meant to be for Thanksgiving instead of for Christmas? I think someone must have told me that before, although I'm not sure why.. haha

    ReplyDelete
  11. Not a Christian myself but whenever we do all those Xmas parties in the office, I'd order a big turkey. xD

    ReplyDelete
  12. Significance of Christmas?

    I just care about the public holiday! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  13. and see Christmas decor all over malls in Malaysia.

    CNY & Hari Raya decor also cannot challenge Chritmas ones.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Turkey is bigger and meatier than chicken, hence it is chosen for Christmas.... I'm bluffing.

    I don't know why Turkey is a must for Christmas :p

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a non-Christian. Joined my girl's kindergarten's activity and got to know that Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ >> the name Christ-mas, see??

    ReplyDelete
  16. But I really enjoy this season, not the wild countdown parties but I prefer the "silent night" with family and close friends.....

    ReplyDelete

  29. christmas is the most commercialized holiday ever. i think we, even if we're not christians, should be respectful of the day and control ourselves from indulging in the wild parties - though christmas itself has roots in pagan origins.

    as for turkey in christmas dinner, here's what i found: http://recipewise.co.uk/the-history-of-the-turkey-at-christmas

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes! Must have turkey for Christmas although I have no freaking idea why!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Anyway, turkey is not a favorite food of mine. Meat too dry and simply not as nice as chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Still the turkey can be acceptable if served with cranberries sauce : )

    ReplyDelete
  33. By the way, I also have no idea why we celebrate Christmas cos Jesus Christ was not born on Christmas Day. What is Christmas for?

    ReplyDelete
  34. But Christmas time is such a nice time of the year. I always like the Christmassy feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nowadays, Christmas is more like everyone's celebration instead of just the Christians celebrating it. Which is not bad also, in a way.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Anyway, Merry Christmas!! Yes, it's still Christmas for me! : D

  38. Turkey is not always the main dish during Christmas. Goose and duck are also eaten as in Austria and Denmark. Wikipedia has some good info on this if you are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_dinner

    ReplyDelete
  44. our pastor always remind us about the true meaning of Christmas but sad to say, only few knows its real purpose and why are we celebrating such important occasion

    ReplyDelete
  45. as what our pastor said, just emphasize the word CHRIST in Christmas and from that you will be reminded what is this occasion for... and that is to pay tribute to the day when Jesus Christ was born

    ReplyDelete
  46. Christmas is more than just exchanging gifts or having the most wonderful dinner with your family and friends...

    ReplyDelete
