Thanksgiving 2013: What are y'all doing this year?
« on: November 22, 2013, 08:56:21 pm »
The days of thankfulness and giving are all but upon us. Less than a week away. Turkeys will be stuffed. Cranberries will be sauced. Pecans will be pie-d. And all such manner of things.

Anyone got any special plans?

Personally, I'm excited for the thanksgiving/hanukkah overlap this year.


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Huh. Funny. I wonder as time goes on if chanukah will stop being associated with being Jewish not Christmas since they won't be around the same time.

Just going home, my mom's going hermit status this year so just immediate family. I am not pleased but eh its my mom and she wants to keep her boys to herself this year.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Oh, nah. Jewish calendar's mad weird. There's even a month that gets added in and dropped from year to year. In 2014 it'll be back in December, starting on the 16th.

In 2016 it starts on Christmas Eve.

Going to my Mom's.

We cook dinner and hang out all day and my step dad Ric watches football and we all get drunk. Always lots of food and fun.

Thursday? Well, I have a creative writing seminar at 9. Then nothing for the rest of the day until 7, which is Drama society, where I will be silently panicking because the pantomime is not ready, as it goes up the next week.

Not seeing my family until the 13th.

Not doing anything for thanksgibbins, obviously, since its not something we celebrate here but yesterday I did go to a Christmas street fair. I went to see some people from the dance group I'm in perform and caught some of the other acts as well, including an a capella group that was pretty good. Then we went to the pub and drank mulled beverages. Usually I don't get into festive mode until December starts but I'm feeling it early this year!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

For thanksgiving, I'm thankful for not having to see my extended family because we don't celebrate thanksgiving.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Thanksgiving will be at one of my cousin's house instead of the grandparents', so that will be interesting.  And I get to drive all day on two of the busiest travel days of the year, and it will probably be snowing on the way.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Just telling my wife to have a happy birthday. Which is actually on the 26th. We didn't have pilgrims in this country either.
