My dad did a goose one year at Christmas. It was really good -- kind of like turkey dark meat with a somewhat stronger flavor.

They have them at Whole Foods -- I think I'm going to get one.

I just get whatever is in the 6-pack at Costco. Smells manly enough for me.

Someone screwed up a while back and it went into the public domain -- local tv stations started showing it repeatedly at Christmas time for some reason. I'm pretty sure you could find it free online....

We always have pizza for Christmas Eve dinner. :)
