Why turkey on Thanksgiving?
« on: November 23, 2011, 12:20:41 PM »
I never thought of this, but I just saw on Huffington Post of all places.

Turkey in Hebrew is called Tarnegol Hodu, or Rooster of Thanks! Interesting?

even if that true, im pretty sure its the other way around
similar to the hebrew word for the measurement of time known as the second = shniya

but more likely hodu is referring to india

That is a bad analogy.  I am simply pointing out an interesting coincidence.  The poshet pshat is definitely India.
