I Fuckin' Love Thanksgiving

As soon as midnight rolls through on October 31st, the sound of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” plays faintly in everyone’s homes as their mom brings out the dust-covered Christmas decorations. We see the lights go up on everyone’s homes and the weather drops from a hot ass 85 to a cool 70 degrees. Finally, sweater weather for Californians!

However, one holiday does not get talked about at all, and that is Thanksgiving! It’s called the HOLIDAY season for a reason! Of course, most neglect Thanksgiving as it’s a reminder of the mass genocide of the Native people of America, which is a good enough reason for me to not celebrate the holiday at all. However, we forget that Thanksgiving is also a time of food. 

It’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving for all the commercial popularity of turkey, pumpkin pie, and really jiggly cranberry sauce. It’s time to take Thanksgiving back for us. I love Thanksgiving purely because my family makes really good turkey and it’s the one day a year that we actually come together and cook. My family never cooks and we normally eat out, so I savor the hell out of this day because I get to eat good fucking food while wearing a really cute warm brown smokey eye with a nude lip and no one can tell me otherwise!

I fuckin’ love Thanksgiving, y’all. it’s a whole ass day dedicated to indulging our gluttonous behavior, unhealthy spending habits because of Black Friday, and a whole three days off from school. We need to realize it should not be celebrated in favor of colonizers stealing land from indigenous people, but instead be a time to mourn those who have lost the land. So stuff your damn face with turkey while raising a big middle finger to those colonizers! They probably didn’t even season their food anyway.
