It’s the end of October; the leaves are orange, the nights are frightful, trick or treaters are out and about, Susan’s playing Christmas music next door.
Halloween hasn’t even approached, and I can hear Jingle Bells down the block.
I walk in to a Sears and they’re already selling Christmas trees.
We’ve become so obsessed with getting into the holiday spirit that we’ve forgotten about Halloween and Thanksgiving; especially Thanksgiving. Right after Halloween we jump right to Christmas and don’t even acknowledge Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is an extremely important holiday because FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love food and I find it a grievous offense that people are willing to jump straight to Christmas without acknowledging Thanksgiving. It’s like y’all say “fuck Thanksgiving” and start pulling out the Christmas.
It’s not that I have anything against Christmas, it’s that I firmly believe in celebrating one holiday at a time. I also believe that stuffing your face with food while watching a parade that’s 10% floats and 90% bad lip syncing, watching football and watching dogs your broke ass can’t afford is an American pastime as old as baseball and racism. Let’s do our due diligence and make sure that we celebrate one holiday at a time.
Thanksgiving matters damn it!
