The Tall Tale of the Christmas Flounder

Record #:
The tale was perpetuated by Paul Jennewein, who helped to preserve Wilmington’s cultural and spiritual traditions through his column “Along the Cape Fear.” First published in StarNews in 1950, the tall tale contains an element common to legend: a possible foundation of truth. The capture of flounder could have happened during the Great Depression for families not able to afford the customary Christmas turkey or ham.
