i hate thanksgiving dinner

I hate the way I feel after, I hate the focus on foods, I hate being nice to my loser relatives and my parents loser friends. Even the marketers seem to hate thanksgiving- the christmas ads and trees were up 2 weeks before!!

The marketers don't care about Thanksgiving because there isn't much to be sold!

OP, I hear ya

Eventually I boycotted Thanksgiving to do my own thing. It feels good not to have the food hangover. Hold strong, soon you will be old enough to do what you want, too.

Get over yourselves. You are so obsessed with the dinner that you forgot what Thanksgiving is all about. You should be thankful that you have food to eat and relatives to eat with. I hope you gain 10lbs this week.

NO Thanksgiving Socks!

Note to marketers: there are NO thanksgiving socks! Not one turkey sock, not one pilgrim sock, not one pumpkin pie sock, not one plymouth rock sock, not one Mayflower sock... NO Thanksgiving socks! This would be the perfect marketing idea for those like us on PT who are looking for non-food related ways to let people know we are thankful!

So do I. I hate turkey. Why would anyone want to eat such a stupid animal? cranberry seems like it would be great but then they make slimy jello out of it. Stuffing is disgusting. Gravy looks like a pool of mud. Who invented it?

You people make me laugh. Turkey socks... that is great!!

I have grown bitter of the holiday season as I have gotten older and I have seen the selfishness and commercialism they have turned into... but once I had my daughter things changed. Suddenly I have someone to celebrate for. I want to show her how to be thankful and the magic of the season.

Give yourself time, either you will find a way to slink out of all holiday duties or you will find a reason to love them again.

I LOVE Thanksgiving - a very non-stressful holiday meant solely to be feeling grateful and spending quality time with freinds and family.. eating a special dinner.... I love it. and I love watching Peanuts Thanksgiving special on dvd together with the kids in anticipation of the holiday .. I love finding out what everyone is thankful for.. I love decorating the table in fall festivities.... I have control of what goes in my mouth and so I DO NOT stuff myself - just savor the good food and enjoy the company and watch the kids having fun.

Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

OMG, me too!

A whole holiday that revolves around food and hanging out feeling bloated. YUK. My personal protest is that I'm simply not going to eat very much. I'm not going to do one of those "o, well, it's Thanksgiving. It only comes once per year" things and eat 'til I'm sick. NO, not this year.
