“Six allowed at Thanksgiving but 30 for a funeral. I will be holding a funeral for my pet turkey”

"Six allowed at Thanksgiving/Christmas but 30 for a funeral. I will be holding a funeral for my pet turkey” is a jocular Covid-regulation saying that has been printed on many images.

“Only 6 people allowed at Christmas but 30 to a funeral? Think I’ll be having a funeral for my pet turkey on 25th December” was posted on Twitter by Paul Mac on October 21, 2020. “Only six allowed at Christmas but 30 for a funeral. I will be holding a funeral for my pet turkey that sadly passed on 25th december” was posted on Twitter by S G Bett on October 22, 2020.

“I’m not having Thanksgiving this year. Just a funeral for my pet turkey” was posted on Twitter by Avaricious on September 29, 2020.  “Only 6 people are allowed for Thanksgiving, but 30 people are allowed for a funeral… I will be holding a funeral for my pet turkey that passes away on November 26th… Refreshments provided” was posted on Twitter by Jeremy H. G. Hayes on October 25, 2020. This Thanksgiving version probably originated on a Facebook meme.

I’m having a funeral for my pet turkey on Christmas Day. I’m inviting up to 30 mourners who will stay for the wake. It will be an emotional affair - the laughter will be us bravely smiling through the tears.

I’m putting all on notice that I’ll be holding a funeral for my pet turkey, TOM, that sadly passed and will be honored on the 25th.
He will be properly dressed for the occasion.
