I've already said more "Happy Thanksgivings" than
I intended to, and I'm sure I'll say more before the day is
However, to me, today is just Thursday.
I don't like the idea of one designated day to "give thanks" for anything. I detest that so many people in this country will stuff themselves like gluttons today, and so much food will be wasted while so many people will still be hungry. Then, many people will completely forget what they're supposed to be "thankful" for, while they fight others for "bargains".
I know, I know, curmudgeon. Perhaps, but whatever.
This is something that has bugged the hell outta me for a really LONG time.
If you can't be grateful for the good things and good people in your life EVERY DAMNED DAY, why is one day on the calendar good enough to do it?
I hope everyone enjoys their feasting and whomever you're sharing the day with. What I really hope is that everyone knows and appreciates all the good things in their lives all
the other 364 days of the year.
Today is just another day. BUT with the inconvenience of many stores, banks, and restaurants closed.
I was going to go to a church charity dinner but I don't think I will.
Got some fine leftovers that need eating.
Have not had to acknowledge ANY holidays yet (so far)
When I was an "employee", holidays = paid days off usually with family and/or friends.
Now that I freelance, holidays = days off usually with family and/or friends.
Not since I learned Santa and the Easter Bunny weren't real have I believed any of the given reasons for any "holiday". Working in retail during Xmas season didn't help either.
OH Lard this day we give thanks that you did not see fit to give the injuns, tanks, cannons or machine guns, (or an immunity to small pox) so as when our ancestors landed here and started stealing every damn thing they could get their filthy paws on them heathen savages could not fight back.
