I really like Thanksgiving. No, I love Thanksgiving.

Great food, friends, family, football. Whats not to love?


Too bad it barely exists anymore. It is nothing more than a speed bump on the way to Christmas.

By the time December gets here, I am already tired of Christmas.

I am hereby boycotting any business that advertises anything Christmas in November. I am guessing I better really start liking chinese food.

Thanksgiving and Fourth of July are my favorite holidays...probably because they are centered around food and family.

Christmas sucks.

Zod just unknowingly kicked off the Festivus season by starting an Airing of Grievances thread...

I'm with ya Zod, we should consider moving Thanksgiving to the same day as the Canadian one so it's further away from xmas.

I blame DVR. Yep. We want everything our way and we don't want somebody telling us to do anything.
I agree though, it seems right after Halloween the Christmas music begins and things can blow by Thanksgiving.
Since my wife's bday falls on Thanksgiving every so many years it's a big deal at Pstall Manor.

Zod, I nominate you to start a grass roots effort to bring Thanksgiving back to it's rightful place as a holiday pillar.

I'm with Zod on this... Christmas has become two months long and by the time it's December it's beyond old...

There's a radio station here in town that switches from 80's/90's music to all Christmas music from Thanksgiving to Jan. 1. I hate it, turn that crap off.

LOVE Thanksgiving, but I agree. Christmas becomes more commercial every year and eventually there will be an apocolypse and all these capitalist scumbags will finally atone for over-indulgences in hedonistic pleasures.

That said, turkey day is awesome.
