What Did You Expect, a Turkey Card?
I was invited to spend this particular Thursday in Connecticut with some wonderful family friends. And I, being so thankful and homesick, accepted this invitation. I love giving thanks. It’s a great thing to do. I said “thank you” multiple times to the family that invited me, probably to the point of annoyance. I’d rather do that everyday but not one a day commemorating the slaughter of Native Americans on the “New Land”. So this is the one day where I never say “thank you”.
I’m not one to judge Christopher Columbus for not having a GPS and then giving an educated guess. I am, however, one to judge the whole genocide thing. Not cool. That’s probably the least cool thing someone could do. Like super ~uncool~.
I do celebrate “thanksgiving”. I celebrate it on June 6th . But this night is a more formal, well-funded, color coordinated, family and friend dinner. And I will forever be thankful for it
Even if we don't believe in every aspect of a holiday, the simple beliefs are what we celebrate. Or even simpler, just say "thank you for dinner" and move tf on.
End your night with one more 'thank you', to whoever or whatever you want. Something that made the difference.
