Thankful For Thanksgiving

November 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

I wouldn’t call Thanksgiving my favorite holiday, but I do like it quite a bit. A couple of reasons…

  1. I love the fact that its a holiday developed for the purpose of being thankful.
  2. I love that the only thing we do on this holiday is eat.
  3. I love the fact that of all hoopla and money that goes into other holidays, this one can be extremely inexpensive… a couple of potatoes, a can of pumpkin, and turkey (which is currently on sale for $0.30 per pound!)
  4. And I love that, unlike Christmas or the 4th of July, on this day everyone in America eats the same meal. With minor alterations and substitutes, we get the majority of our nations citizens to sit down on this one day, eat the same thing, and hopefully show some gratitude. What are the odds of getting a nation of people to do this- ever? It’s pretty fantastic.

Also fantastic (and kind of disgusting) is this Thanksgiving Cake pictured above. {CHOW}
