When they landed in America, all they could find to eat was turkeys and cranberries.

So that's why the Americans eat turkey at Christmas with cranberry snauce, and call Christmas day, Thanksgiving day.

And why do the British eat turkey at Christmas? How should I know.

Report macarony September 20, 2021 9:47 AM BST
You can use coal to make gas and at the same time produce chemicals that go into thousands of products everything from petrol to toothpaste. But another way to produce gas is by the bio digester this captures escaping methane that is produced when bio matter breaks down. Now methane is a green house gas that is at least 15 x more damaging to the environment than co2, if you burn 1 litre of methane is produces half a litre of co2 in other words a net saving equal to fourteen and a half litres of co2 in terms of applied damage to the environment
