It’s Thanksgiving! Yay turkey! Or, yay non-turkey if you don’t like it or if you’re a vegetarian or you just want to eat some pizza on your day off! I love Thanksgiving because it gives people the opportunity to slow down–or if they need a “catch up” day it’s perfect for that too! Either way, it’s a day to relax and breathe a little. Also, it’s a good day for people to reflect upon their decisions and their lives (which I do on a regular basis but for those of you who aren’t as introverted as myself, it’s subtly forced by our “thankful” society). I guess, historically speaking, it’s a day to look at how one group of people came to this country for religious freedom, almost died of starvation, were saved by a group of the Native peoples, and then turned around and gave those Natives a bunch of diseases and eventually took their land/ways of living/religious traditions. Economically speaking, Thanksgiving is the day before the biggest shopping day of the year. Oh, how we are so good at over consumption and spending; can’t say American’s aren’t good at anything now can we? Thanksgiving is AMAZING!
Now don’t you feel better?
