Where's the Turkey?

We drive by a 59 Diner restaurant on our way home from school. There was a huge inflatable turkey on top of the restaurant earlier this month. But this week, it has been replaced by a huge Santa inflatable. It's annoying since Thanksgiving is not until next week, and they have already bypassed the holiday for Christmas. So much for the season of giving thanks.... and onto the season of gifts and 'gimme more'...

The first time I noticed that the turkey had been replaced, I asked the kids, "Hey, what happened to the big turkey?" Trinh replies, "Santa ate him!" This cracked us all up. So now, when we pass the big Santa, Trinh tells a new story about how the turkey disappeared and got replaced by Santa. Today, she says, "Santa beat up the turkey and took it's place!" And you know what? I think that's exactly what happened...
