Why Is Fish Inferior To Chicken And Turkey During Christmas Period by Davidolives(m): 10:18am On Dec 25, 2012
Why is fish inferior to chicken & Turkey during the yuletide period?

Why is Turkey/Chicken symbolic of the Yuletide period and why do peeps buy, cook and eat more of them instead of fish?

Even economically disadvantaged people would want to buy chicken/turkey when fish is cheaper and more nutritious?

Go to any market, cold room where fish & turkey/chicken are sold and you observe people buying more of the birds

Why is this? Contributions please. . .

Maybe only in Naija it's class..... sorry to burst your bubble... I've decided not to cook that huge turkey this Christmas ( we just had one in thanksgiving in october embarassed) .... I went to the farm and picked up a whole goat yesterday ( smoked with skin on tongue & all inside inclusive for pepper soup ) and that's what we are having this Christmas .... no poultry this Christmas ... sorry grin

And besides what's wrong with fish? It's good for you and rich in zinc and iron.... Naija and wrong focus , class ko class ni grin

We're not doing a huge turkey roast this Christmas, we opted for something very different.

And for reference, Fish is much more expensive than Meat, by a huge margin. I can't speak for Nigeria though.

Shicken is the bestest. If you haven't had shicken/turkey this season you're just deceiving yourselves... All depends on your preference at the end of the day! cool

Old boy there is fish and there is fish.
No be every fish be mate.

At any point in time try to buy fresh fish anywhere in Nigeria and you will know what's up.

Not ice fish,geisha , "SAND DIN" grin or point and kill but

REAL fresh fish like obokun,kuta or oweere at least 3 times the cost of chicken
Anyway fresh fish is something that is "TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN" The unitiated will not even notice the difference

No be beans oo

1.Some people only eat chicken and turkey during christmas period. *poverty tinz*
2. They taste delicious compare to fish.
3. Just to prove that they did the christmas in a big way. imagine after eating they pour the bones outside where every1 will see them or be using the bone for chewing stick just for their neigbour to see.*even if they borrow or collected them in dept. *poverty tinz*

I think is cultural to eat turkey or chicken during christmas period, people just get use to that and is not likely to change

As for me, we're cooking the turkey in the oven as I speak. grin grin grin


BTW, the fish in my area is a lil more expensive than chicken or turkey. Chicken is about $0.60 - $0.75/lb as opposed to Fish that's about $1.30 to almost $4.00/lbs. I mean that depends on the type of fish. Salmons are VERY EXPENSIVE.
