Everybody seems to skip over this holiday, they go from Halloween straight to Christmas, by putting up their Christmas tree, lights, and start to listen to their festive music. What some people forget is that there is a holiday dedicated to “giving thanks” called Thanksgiving, where you spend time with your family and friends.
One of the main reasons why everybody loves Thanksgiving is because of the food. Thanksgiving is a holiday dedicated to eating food, and who doesn’t love to eat food? Your family really can’t judge you for eating a lot of food on this holiday, so why not go for plate 3, the food is just too good. Also, don’t forget about the leftovers that will be sitting in your fridge for a solid month.
Black Friday, is the day after Thanksgiving that has awesome deals that people can’t resist. Everyone goes out and waits in the cold, long lines for those special deals. Don’t get me wrong this day is actually very chaotic, USNews states, “7 people have died and 98 have been injured in the U.S while Black Friday shopping since 2006.”
During High school or College, lots of people celebrate “Friendsgiving” this is Thanksgiving but with your friends. It’s a time to celebrate the holiday with your closest friends while munching on some turkey.
Most importantly, Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with your family for everything you are grateful for. It’s a time where your whole family gets together and shares memories. Although, some conversations you might be trying to avoid like the college questions, but sometimes you just have to suck it up for a day, and be grateful.
After Thanksgiving is over, Christmas is only 27 days away, but who’s counting? Now its time to get out the lights, the Christmas tree, and to kick back and listen to the jingles. Christmas is an exciting holiday to look forward to, but don’t forget about Thanksgiving, a holiday that brings together family and traditions.
