The original inhabitants of America called this bird a 'firkee.' It's not hard to see how firkee could become turkey.
Christopher Columbus, the explorer, took some of the wild turkeys of North America back to Europe. People enjoyed eating the meat. It is possible that traders along the Mediterranean casts, known as Turkes, may have brought some of these birds hence they came to be called 'turkey birds.'
In Spain, the turkey was often referred to as Indian fowl, an allusion which is repeated in the French 'dindon' formed with d'Inde which means 'from India'.How were turkeys so named?
Some say Columbus thought the turkey was part of the peacock family. So he decided to call them 'tuka' which is the word for peacock in Tamil, a language spoken in southern India and Sri Lanka.
Pulling the wishbone is a tradition of Thanksgiving. Firstly, it's best to allow the wishbone to dry. Then, two people each grasp one end of the wishbone.
