Happy Thanksgiving. For the love of the Sacred Bird, stop shopping!
I am finally giving you another vlog. So much for my once/month commitment to myself. If it makes you feel better, I had also committed to shaving once/week and that didn’t happen either. Fair fair.
This time I am singing again because I know you can’t get enough of that. I get distressed by the lack of respect for Thanksgiving as a holiday in the US. It started last year when I was travelling to NYC with Daphne (my daughter, not her real name) over the holiday. We expected to watch the Macy’s parade, go to a show and watch a movie in our room after we found a restaurant serving turkey. We found every shop open and the city buzzing instead. WTF?! Can’t y’all just take one day to celebrate family? The next day was Black Friday for crying out loud, can’t you shop then?
This idea is courtesy of another blogger, Foxy Wine Pocket, who does a fabulous job of celebrating the season. Check out how she celebrates (after you hear my song of course). Simply brilliant (her, not me, just to be clear)!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. We all have plenty to be thankful for with the world going to hell in front of our eyes. Enjoy your family, hold them close and give your plastic a rest until Friday.
