Why do turkeys always go, "gobble, gobble"?

In many parts of the world a day is set side to give thanks. The date and customs may vary from country to country but the desire to take time to reflect on life's blessings remains the same. In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It is a time for family, food, and football, and marks the unofficial beginning to the winter holiday season.
