This poem based on The Night Before Christmas tells the wacky tale of the day before Thanksgiving.  Eight boys and girls take a field trip to a turkey farm playing with eight exuberant turkeys, but are shocked to learn the farmer plans to kill all the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners. The children smuggle all the turkeys home and all their Thanksgiving dinners become vegetarian this year. The turkeys’ lives are saved!
