Thanksgiving Awesomeness

So it is Thanksgiving time again and is really my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving  has become, hands down, my favorite holiday and here’s why. It has all the family and friend re-union benefits of Christmas, without any of the pressure of gift buying and giving. You really can just hang out with family and friends to talk, reminisce and relax. Add in the great partying on the night before and you’ve got yourself a real winner.

This Thanksgiving here is my short list of what I’m looking forward to:

  • Spending time with my family and friends, many of whom I have not seen in several months
  • Watching my old high school football team play in their Thanksgiving day rivalry. One of the best traditions I know of and have really grown to love here in New England
  • Watching pro football after going comatose from eating so much
  • Eating a lot, and mildly competing with my younger brother to see who can eat more
  • Partying Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night and probably Saturday night
  • Laughing so hard my stomach hurts
  • Sitting around and not thinking about work, school or really anything else except the good time I am enjoying

I’m sure there’s more and I could probably write a dissertation on why Thanksgiving is the best American holiday, however in the interest of letting everyone get to their preparations and celebrations I’ll keep it short. Have a great holiday, enjoy the time with family and friends, don’t sweat the small stuff and just take some time to forget about everything else and relax.

Stay classy.
