The Christmas goose fell out of favor in the 1960s when Britons began opting for turkey, The Observer reported Saturday.

This year however, the goose is making a comeback.

Morrisons supermarket reported orders of fresh geese are up 50 percent this year from the same time last year, while sales at Waitrose have increased by 30 percent and M&S reports 16 percent more orders of its speciality free-range birds.

"While turkey is still the nation's favorite at Christmas, alternative centerpieces are becoming popular, with sales of goose up 30 percent year on year. Historically, goose was always served for Christmas lunch and it seems that shoppers are looking back at old traditions and reviving them for the modern dinner table," said Frances Westerman, Waitrose's poultry buyer.
