So, the thing about Thanksgiving is…

Okay, is it weird that Thanksgivings at my house make me a bit worried about getting married to someone who is really into Thanksgiving traditions.
You see, my family and I kinda don’t make a big deal out of it. We mostly just lay around all day, eat around 2 pm and that’s it.
Not much else to it.

But when I take a look at some of the photos and crap posted today, or just listening to some of my coworkers discus their Thanksgiving plans it’s a really big deal.
They have family get togetherness and they have huge family football game. Etc.
Well, I’m not big on extended family and I am very close with my immediate family.
So, to be honest, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. I mean, it’s nice to have dinner with my family, but we are around each other a lot. So it’s not a big occasion.

Also, I kind of think if you need a whole day to remind you to be thankful, you’re doing it wrong.
But it does make people think about being grateful, even just temporarily. So, it’s not like it’s a bad Holiday. I wasn’t saying that.
Just that it doesn’t play a big part for me.

Side note, today a guy that I was really close with once for like 4 years but then rejected me in a pretty cruel way texted me wishing me a Happy Thanksgiving.
Yeah…not a good enough reason to text me.

Then there is the fact that the whole holiday has been overshadowed by Black Friday now.
Another thing I don’t get.
I mean, I went to Target and waited in line. But I ended up buying some boots, lotion, foundation, sleep aid and Oreos.
I don’t think that’s what this is about.
And people are going crazy in there. What the hell?
It was one of the more tiring experiences of my life.

I don’t know. I am thankful for my family and for my current mindset on where I am in life.

You can’t see me shrug.
