Freeze a Fresh Turkey? Am I Nuts?

I find myself with a fresh, farm pastured, locally raised turkey (read: freakishly expensive but delicious) that was slaughtered a few days ago and I did not cook I today. And I might not be able to cook it this weekend. (Long story.)

Anyway, can I freeze this thing and have it at Xmas? How much quality will it lose? It is cryovaced in my fridge right now, and I'm thinking of moving it to the deep freeze. I'd love to give it to my parents at Xmas, since I know they really want one like this. I just don't know what the freezing will do.
