Can you believe I almost forgot about Thanksgiving? Sure we’ve talked about what we are going to eat, but then all of a sudden it’s Tuesday and I’ve prepared nothing but this turkey coloring page! Seems like everyone else has too since the Christmas banners are already up in our town. Oh well, we decided to have crab and lobster this year and forgo the turkey altogether. Who actually likes turkey anyway!
- We all know turkeys go, “gobble gobble”. Do you know what sound they make in Mandarin? 火雞發出的聲音是”咯咯咯” (Huǒ jī fāchū de shēngyīn shì gēgē gē).
- In Chinese “turkey” is “火雞”, which translates to “fire chicken” because of their red heads.
- The turkeys we buy from the store are females, called hens. The males, called toms or gobblers, can weigh up to 25 pounds and are too big to be sold as Thanksgiving turkeys.
Hope my post is handy for your Thanksgiving dinner conversation. The turkey coloring sheets are available in traditional and simplified. Download by clicking on the images below.
