Depends on the fish. People who really want to eat fish go for croacker or catfish.

jidegirl12: 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

Davidolives: 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. . .

y u noe go buy fish chop, #continue tearing chicken# grin grin

aribisala0: 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


Leave am ...

Those birds are significantly cheaper than proper fish.

When you're in Rome they say.... that's just the sincere answer to your question.

Everybody cooks turkey on thanksgiving......

there's a food bank for the less privileged that even gives free turkey for that day, it's kinda important to them I guess ....gobble gobble cheesy cheesy

I just don't think it's ( Turkey/ any poultry ) importance is attached to Christmas .... it's just your preference of food.

Because chicken is sweeter than fish.
Re: Why Is Fish Inferior To Chicken And Turkey During Christmas Period by ignis(f): 6:13pm On Dec 25, 2012
Chicken are in sizes and clasess just like meat too. Beside most ppl don't eat fish therefore reducing demand on fish.

Emmyk: Simple! Fish is a an every-day-thing.. Turkey and chicken is not. #grabs chicken with leg crossed gulping my can Amster Malt

Your statement is relative bro. We eat chicken so often, there's no novelty. We actually eat fish less often.

Uyi Iredia: Because chicken is sweeter than fish.

How can any kind of meat be "sweet"? Unless it's marinaded in sugar / honey, it'll be tasty or savoury. Never sweet.

Sorry bro, I didn't know what he meant, when he said chicken's sweeter than fish. And yeah, there's "sweet and sour" chicken, but we both know that's more of a Chinese flavour, and not a traditional Christmas cooked chicken!

Still, I now know what the "sweet" reference to chicken is, in the Nigerian sense. wink

Merry Christmas!
