I have a history of writing about the holiday days after the actual holiday but honestly, I don’t celebrate any holiday.
I either disagree with the message, I find the holiday a little ridiculous, or I just find no interest or desire to participate.
But honestly, and don’t plan my murder now, I believe Thanksgiving to be the worst holiday out there.
Now, I know. The gasps I just heard coming from your diaphragm was very loud even from all the way over here.
But honestly, Thanksgiving is celebrated to celebrate what we are thankful for. How do we do this? By overeating, breaking diets, and not doing anything we would typically do.
We complain about every little thing in the world right up until this moment in time and then we are suddenly thankful for everything that the world has to offer.
I personally see it as the “one day I have to pretend I enjoy and like my life so I am allowed to complain for 364 days before I ask for redemption.”
I hate any holiday that focuses on doing something that we are meant to do every single day.
We are supposed to be thankful and loving of all that the good has to offer in our world. All 365 days of the year.
So please, instead of making some ridiculously long post of everything you are “thankful” for this year, acknowledge it every day of your life.
So please, for all you who have created the super long post that references being happy that you have found love, that you have clothes on your back, that you have internet, that you can eat and enjoy food, or even (Merlin Forgive Me) that you have accepted God as your lord and savior.
Please remember all of these things that you are thankful for, remember them every single day of your life instead of once a year. Acknowledge the powers you have received and the gifts that you have bestowed upon you.
Remember these days and how you are thankful for them during moments of anger or sadness. Because these are things that one should be thankful for their entire life.
So even though we don’t eat a feast every single day of the year, please treat it as though it is always Thanksgiving.
Remember to give thanks to what you have received, appreciate all you have been honored with, and love all that you are thankful for.
Anyways, I hope you had a good one!
