This coming Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US. A day when we gather with loved ones, be it family or friends or any combination thereof, and give thanks for what we have and what we’re fortunate enough to have had. I don’t know why the “giving of thanks” is only limited to one day a year. We should be thankful every day.
That being said, I would urge folks to not spoil the warm fuzzy feelings that Thanksgiving brings by going out the next day and participating in the havoc wreaking for pointless material gain called “Black Friday.” Trust me, no matter how exciting the latest gadget may seem, it’s really not worth it.
This particular Thanksgiving (and subsequently, Christmas next month) is going to be particularly difficult for me and my family as it will be our first holiday without a significant member of our little unit (those of you who follow my blog might remember me mentioning a tragedy that befell my family a few months ago…). So, folks, be extra thankful for family. You never know how much time you’ll have with them.
I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. And remember, the holidays aren’t about anything material, they’re about…
Until next time…
It’s once again the time of year to give thanks for your blessings. Well, that and to stuff yourself silly with too much food! Thanksgiving (at least here in the US)!
Save a turkey! Eat a veggie burger! [-_^]
I wish you all a safe, happy, and (hopefully) healthy Thanksgiving.
Until next time…
For those of you that don’t know me, and for those of you that do but just don’t pay much attention, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m a strict vegetarian/vegan. What does that mean? Well, I don’t eat any form of meat (no beef, chicken, eggs, fish, or anything else that ever had a face or heartbeat), and I do my best to stay away from dairy products and other animal derived products.
I know what some of you may be wondering. What the hell does this girl eat on Thanksgiving? So glad you asked! The answer is simple. I eat vegetables (obviously) and an amazing vegan chicken alternative from a brand called “Quorn” (look them up, their food is delicious!).
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, only about three days away, in fact, I’ve been thinking a lot about it and the millions of Turkeys that will be butchered for the sake of this holiday. Now, I’m not here to preach to you about my personal philosophies or to tell you that it’s wrong to eat turkey (or meat in general), I’m just sharing my side of the fence with folks who may be interested in trying something different and new this holiday season.
So, your mission, if you choose to accept it (hopefully I don’t get sued for using that line because I‘m poor and it‘s the holidays!), is to “Save A Turkey And Eat A Veggie Burger”. I’m curious to know how many of you fine folks out there will take on this little unofficial challenge I‘m setting out before you, and how many of you are too chicken…or in this case, Turkey!…to do it. Maybe I’ll post a little poll or something next Monday to see who ate turkey and who saved one.
Turkey says: “Please Don’t Eat Me!!”
But, whatever your choice of menu this Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday!
Until next time…
