November 25th – Thanksgiving for USA

Thanksgiving dinner’s sad and thankless
Christmas dinner’s dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey’s point of view.

Sunday dinner isn’t sunny
Easter feasts are just bad luck
When you see it from the viewpoint
Of a chicken or a duck.

Oh how I once loved tuna salad
Pork and lobsters, lamb chops too
‘Til I stopped and looked at dinner
From the dinner’s point of view.
—-Shel Silverstein

 

And I mean…Thanksgiving is the biggest festival in America, more important than Christmas because everyone celebrates it, regardless of denomination, whether they go to church, synagogue, mosque, Hindu temple or no place of worship at all.
It also draws its charm from the fact that gifts are largely avoided.

Just not the turkey. It should not be missing at any Thanksgiving festival that deserves its name.
For that single day, 46 million of these intelligent animals will be murdered.

The number of turkeys bred in the United States approaches 250 million each year, and soon there will be more turkeys than humans in the country.

So.. would “Mordgiving for Turkeys” be more correct?

My best regards to all, Venus

  1. It’s a very destructive and cruel “holiday” disguised as “giving thanks” with the bodies of tortured and killed beings. :((
