Description

Natural piece of wood carved into a finely detailed goose. Geese were the original centerpiece of the feast at Michaelmas, a pagan holiday that fell on the winter solstice celebrating the end of the harvest season. When the holiday was eventually replaced by Christmas, the goose again became the meat of the meal. It wasn't until American settlers found themselves with an abundance of turkeys at hand that the tradition changed, and that unlucky fowl took to the table as the main attraction of the holiday meal.
