Gobble-gobble or Not to Gobble

Gobble-gobble or not to gobble.

75% of my invited Thanksgiving Day guests and family all agree - they do not like turkey.
Go figure.
I wonder then just how many people partake of this annual ritual on Thanksgiving to be polite. Are rituals negotiable? Is a turkey dinner the symbol of Thanksgiving or is the symbol the gathering together to share blessings?
I plan to share the blessing and not serve a roasted turkey with all the trimmings.
For me and my family this year it's steak, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes.
Yes, rituals are negotiable and compromise comes in many shapes. No turkey on Thanksgiving? No way.
Compromise also comes in many flavors including See's milk chocolate foil-wrapped turkeys.
A Thanksgiving Day I don't spent probing a turkey's cavern is fine with me. For that I give double thanks.
Chocolate anyone?
