I don’t really like the holiday. Last year I wrote about how it sucks. For some reason a ton of people all over the country have been finding that post in the last few weeks. I don’t know how. I don’t know why.
This morning I texted some people why I’m thankful for them in my life. I also tweeted, completely unironically, that I am thankful for Gritty, the new mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers. If you don’t follow him on instagram you’re robbing yourself of a silly amount of joy.
But now the day is done. The song from the SNL skit above is still stuck in my head. Thanksgiving is over.
It’s time to emotionally prepare myself for the beauty of Christmas, the one good holiday.
