I really dislike thanksgiving.

I feel like in a strange we we are celebrating the colonization of the most oppressed people around the world: indigenous peoples. (Especially women and children.) Also, the fact that 300 million turkeys die every year and live their shortened objectified lives in a gross and abusive way. I see wild turkeys a lot near the bird sanctuary - they are coooooool. Also - it’s black friday the day after. This holiday season is completely an antithesis to what I cherish. 

But yeah. Most people just enjoy a meal with their family and talk about what they are thankful for so that’s pretty cool. (And ostracize the weirdos in their family with little remarks.)

But yeah.
