It’s that time of year again that requires you to buy everyone, who you’ve ever crossed paths with, a gift. And your family repeatedly asks for what you want as a present.
The truth is, what we really actually want, no one can buy for us.
1. Calorie-less food that doesn’t taste like vegetables
2. Money (like a lot)
3. A job that doesn’t suck…well, maybe just a job will work
4. A re-do on the whole election thing
5. The ability to be socially chill around our crushes
6. The chance to erase our middle school years
So last time I checked, November comes after October….not December.
I get Christmas is exciting, decorating a giant tree with strings of popcorn, greedily awaiting your presents, selectively recalling the actual meaning of the holiday, and eating the cookies you set out for a man, who will never appear (sorry to have to tell you that). But why does that mean Thanksgiving should be tossed aside and forgotten, like that gift grandma got you?
It is said the original Thanksgiving may not have been as happy as we would like to portray it, but its representation is real and something to keep alive. It’s a day that reminds us what we need to be thankful for. It’s a day to test our patience. It’s a day to ruin our dieting plans.
What’s better than gorging on massive amounts of carbs and turkey? I mean, who really needs to go on a diet? This ONE day won’t make you explode. It will make your pants explode right off you, but you won’t be harmed…much.
You are killing the soul of many out in the world, who actually look forward to Thanksgiving, by just skipping right over it like you skip over the salad portion of the meal. You are the reason my soul is crushed. Plus you’re apparently killing reindeer, too.
So this is a call to action to remember the fallen turkeys. Remember the lost holidays that Hallmark didn’t create.
Bring back Thanksgiving at full force!
