Holidays and such

November 21, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

So, it appears Thanksgiving is this week. Not one of my favorite holidays, really. You know what? There aren’t really that many holidays I actually look forward to, outside of looking forward to a day off. Easter? Candy and rabbits aren’t enough for me to stomach the most religious of our holidays. Fourth of July? Fireworks are cool, but nothing to write home about. Halloween? I may actually actively dislike that holiday, and not for any particular reason. New Year’s? Huzzah, the year incremented! The other minor holidays don’t have the festivities to make them worth more than the vacation time (though plenty are holidays for a good reason).

Back to Thanksgiving. I wish there were some decent Thanksgiving movies. As it stands, the only one I can think of is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, which is good. Anything else? I suspect not.

This also happens to be the first Thanksgiving on my own and, fittingly, the first one I won’t be spending with family. Which isn’t really a huge deal, but it is different.

The one thing I do like about Thanksgiving can be guessed from the list of holidays above, specifically, the one that’s missing. It means the beginning of the Christmas season. That’s a holiday. Fascinating history, a nice humanist message, presents…what could be better? Alright, so not having roaming bands of morons making up culture war skirmishes would be better, but nothing is perfect.

In any case, Happy Thanksgiving.
