The big turnip
How does the story go?
Daddy pulls the turnip, mummy pulls daddy, brother pulls mummy, sister pulls brother
Sister pulls brother, brother pulls mummy, mummy pulls daddy, daddy pulls the turnip

from what I remember from my childhood it was grandpa pulling the turnip, then grandma pulling him, granddaughter pulling her, then dog, cat and a mouse. Maybe you ve heard a different version.

In Israel it s Eliezer and a "gezzer =carrot!
I guess the turnip turned into a carrot for the rhyme... but it s the same --grandparents, dog, cat, mouse!
Then they grate the carrote into a big salad and all the neighbors join in!
