Christmas is known as a time of peace and goodwill. But what about turkeys and piglets?
For them Christmas has to be the cruellest time of the year. Increasingly, our cele?bration of the birth of the “Prince of Peace” is becoming a torturous time for crustaceans too, who are merci?lessly boiled alive for taste. Does this make sense? If Christmas is a time of peace, why are we inflicting so much violence on our fellow creatures? Doesn’t this turn Christmas into a sham? Isn’t it time we started cele?brating Christmas in the loving man?ner it is meant to be celebrated – with no tortured corpses on our dinner table?
