How do you defrost your turkey?

My mother (and in turn, I) always left it to thaw in the sink or even the roaster with cold water overnight. Everything I read says that to thaw a turkey that way, you need to change the water every 30 minutes. I want to thaw it overnight submersed in cold water in the sink, but now I'm paranoid.

What do you guys think?

    At first glance I thought this topic was a euphemism for something else, lol!

    Our house always defrosts in the sink in a tub without any water. Usually takes ages but turns out alright for us? :)

    Hi, BrendaLee! Wow, long time no see!

    I usually let it defrost in the fridge. . . takes a while.

    Hi! :)

    I'm leaning towards not cooking it tomorrow and letting it thaw in the fridge for a few days.
