Unlike Columbus Day, I actually like Thanksgiving. Celebrating the symbolic meeting between Pilgrims and Indians, when despite their differences, they came together at the same table and shared their cultures is a great lesson for everyone. Plus, we all have a lot to be thankful for, and what better way to celebrate than to eat a giant meal, lounge around lazily, and gamble on football?
But since everyone has the whole weekend off anyways, we should consider naming Friday as an official holiday as well. Maybe something a little more historically all-encompassing? I’m thinking of a name along the lines of Remember How We Eventually Killed All Those Indians? Day. You know, something to really bring the lesson full circle.
Anyways, here are the Nine Most Annoying Conversations You’ll be Having on Thanksgiving. Enjoy.
