Speak Your Mind: Be Thankful
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States. I know that it’s a heavily criticized holiday for being imperialist, but I can’t help but love it. I love the weather. I love the food. I love seeing my cousins that I rarely hear from. And even though I’m not someone who is generally in touch with my feelings (I was raised Catholic, after all) it’s a good time to reflect on how good my life is. Is is perfect? No, far from it. But it’s pretty damn good.
What are you thankful for? Is Thanksgiving a big deal at your house? For you non-Americans (and non-Canadians), have you ever participated in Thanksgiving rituals? Do you think it’s weird? Are you able to separate good feelings the holiday causes from its not-awesome origins?
