How long does it take to defrost a turkey?

how long should I thaw out my turkey before I cook it for Christmas?
Submitted by fruity_flowers2

Defrosting a turkey in the refrigerator will take approximately 3-4 days depending on the size of your turkey. A good rule of thumb is to allow one day of thawing in the refrigerator for every 4 pounds of turkey.
