Florida Man Films Family's Unusual Thanksgiving 'Turkey Toss Tradition'

A Florida man filmed his family’s unusual method of defrosting Thanksgiving turkeys on November 24 as Americans prepared for the holiday.

This footage, shot by Mark O’Donnell, shows his uncle, Chuck, perform the so-called “Turkey Toss Tradition”, which this year involved hurling a 16-pound (7.3kg) frozen bird named “Donald” into O’Donnell’s backyard pool.

“So, yes folks, we thaw our turkey in the pool,” he says in the video. “That’s how you do it when you live in Florida and tomorrow morning we’ll take that out.” Credit: Mark O’Donnell via Storyful
