All you have to do is think of something associated with Christmas, in alphabetical order. That's easy enough, don't you think ?

E... Eek (that noise you make when you notice you missed out a letter and have to edit it in).

F... Friends' chaotic Christmases. :Oo

(Our 'doh' moments have included oven door breaking off on Christmas Eve; icing sliding off the cake; gifts losing their labels -- if they ever had them attached in the first place -- something my mother does every year; gifts being forgotten and not found till weeks later at the back of a cupboard; losing a bangle in the broom cupboard when looking for something; a frozen turkey not being cooked through properly... and we never bought frozen turkeys again!)

Joy To The World by Pentatonix
If you have not heard of Pentatonix, have a listen - they are fantastic ! Leave it running and they will give you a fine "Hallelujah" next.

Q - Quaff some hot chocolate, wrapped in a cozy Quilt.
Soon Santa's belly will Quake when he laughs
like a bowlful of Quince jelly, and he will be
Quoted as he drives out of sight,
"Quick, reindeer, we have Quite a few gifts
To deliver on this Quiet night."

I did check and yes, there are recipes for turkey meatloaf.

Skimming a few.. not sure about using catsup/ketchup, though.

Quite confident that I've never seen, and most definitely.. never had turkey in any form with catsup/ketchup.

But.. depending on the meat you are using from the turkey (dark vs white).. it does seem like you might need an additional item (whatever that item might be) to add some additional moisture (did also see the use of butter mentioned).
