Anyone who knows me (which is nobody…) knows I’m a Grumpy Cat 99.9% of the time. Buuuut, one thing that never fails to cheer me up is Thanksgiving!
Now, I live in England and we don’t celebrate it here. I don’t know why Americans always think we celebrate that, like, hello, it’s specifically an American holiday!! Although Canadians also celebrate it… I don’t know why that is…. I don’t know if it’s like the same Thanksgiving or Canada’s own special Thanksgiving…. It’s on a different date so… maybe it’s kinda different from the American one.
No, we don’t celebrate ThanskGiving. But we do celebrate Black Friday… because we’re consumer whores just like the Americans. Btw, I stay the hell away from Black Friday. Consummerism is… an unattractive human trait.
But regardless, Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday ever! And it’s in my favorite season: fall! Gosh… Thanksgiving makes me think of the Macy’s Day Parade and Yankee pumpkin-fragranced candles and pine-cone wreaths and golden leaves on wet streets and hot turkey with collard greens – holy crap! The only thing that could make me happier than Thanksgiving is if I was handed a box of kittens.
I was lucky to get to celebrate ThanksGiving in America when I was about…….. ……….. ……. :drums fingers: …… oh my god… I was probably about…. 17 or something. It was hundreds of years ago anyway….
But it was a great experience… I was in Vegas with my American relatives and I’ll never forget my gran being drunk AF and we were watching the Macy’s Parade and there was a big red Clifford the Dog float and she was like, “Look at that big bastard!!!” The way she just came out with it was hilarious!
Anyway, I was a little brat back then (not much has changed, I guess….) and I didn’t appreciate the moment, but I do now looking back on it. Gosh, it was great. I love Thanksgiving so much!
Now, ya see, I could celebrate it here (just for me) but I’m homeless (kind of) at the moment so I can’t really do the whole Turkey and greens thang… and I have no friends to invite round to my… lack of home. So… but I will do “something” for it. I will probably treat myself to some KFC or something (wha-? I like KFC!) and do some generosity stuff to “give thanks”.
Hope y’all across the pond have a great one!
