This is my absolute favorite holiday. I guess I like it so much because it has to do only with family (and eating) and doesn't stem from any pagan-based-Christian-stolen roots. Maybe it's because I grew up in that crazy cult with NO holidays and this is the easiest one to ease into, It's the least offensive to my kind. You know, it was on the bottom of the going-to-hell-for list. Easter and XMas were definitely on the top of that list. Maybe it just amuses me that we made a national holiday based around genocide. "Hey there, we're going to be super nice to you guys and smoke your weed and eat your food and learn your traditions, and then we're going to slaughter you and steal your land." Those pilgrims, no wonder they got thrown out of their home.
Not so loving the genocide, bit still loving Turkey day. I have a lot to give thanks for this year. I am going to spend the day with 5 of those reasons. My friend S and I have been trying to find an excuse to spend holidays together, and WOOHOO for being single and being able to go wherever the hell I want today. And there is no place on earth I'd rather go than to her house, with her family. Except for maybe Molly's house with Molly's family. Tell'm all hi for me Molls, k?
