I’m Still Not Entirely Sure What It’s All About…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Is that the correct greeting today?

I don’t know. I’m British. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here. Or I don’t anyway. I can’t speak for all British people (unlike many Brexiteers who think it’s perfectly fine to speak for all British people all of the time…)

But I’m not familiar with anyone celebrating it over here.

I don’t think we even know what it is.

I wrote a blog post about how I didn’t really know what it was two years ago.

I still haven’t bothered to find out.

And I still haven’t tried Pumpkin Pie.

I don’t know if it’s even possible to get Pumpkin Pie in the UK without learning how to make it myself. And I’m not going to do that.

I mean maybe I’d bother to find out about Thanksgiving if my boss would allow me to honour my US heritage and have the day off.

But he won’t.

And there’s no way he can possibly know I was lying about having US heritage.

But if you are someone who knows what Thanksgiving is and actively celebrates it, then I really hope you’re having a good one.

    I’m having a cracking Thanksgiving, thank you. It will become a thing here, have no doubt. Before too long we’ll all be clasping our hearts during the singing of “You’ll never walk alone!”

    Thanksgiving is a great holiday because it has no deeper meaning than its name — no one saying we’re forgetting Jesus, the lost soldiers or the sacrifices of others.(Okay, there’s history involved.) So your search may continue, because we’re all just thankful for a four-day weekend and don’t care much beyond that. (Wait, you’re right, can’t speak for all my countrymen.)
