Happy Monday and (soon) Thanksgiving! I can’t believe that Turkey Day is this Thursday all ready. Is everyone prepared for the holiday and maybe some Black Friday shopping? I’m not! I still have a lot of cleaning to do!
Today’s Meredith’s Monday Musings topic is: Thanksgiving!
I love this holiday for so many reasons. The main one is probably because it’s a time where my whole family can get together. With all of us being adults now, having full time jobs, and starting families, it’s really hard to get all of us together. Holidays are great days where we get to come together as one, reminisce about memories, and share what’s going on in our lives. So, that’s pretty awesome.
This might sound bad to say, but another reason why I love this holiday is the food. Let me start off by saying, I love all food. It’s delicious. I probably eat too much on a daily basis, but on Thanksgiving, oh man, I indulge myself! How can I not, though? The food is all SOOO good and there’s so much of it. Mmm. Truth be told though, my favorite part about this meal is the leftovers. I’m a huge fan of Shepard’s Pie. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically where you take a bowl, put whatever left overs you want in it, you can mix it up or not, heat it up, and eat it. It’s really good!
Another reason why I love Thanksgiving is the meaning behind it. As a human who lives in a first world country, I can say that I don’t think about how thankful I am as much as I should. I think it’s pretty safe to say too that most first world country humans don’t. Maybe I’m wrong, but it’s my opinion. Anyway, I like that Thanksgiving makes us think about how all of the things that we’re thankful for. It gives us a chance to reflect how lucky we are for the things we have and maybe because of this, ways that we could help out others who aren’t as lucky as we are. I think if more people did that, thought of others and how they could help them out, our world would be a much better place.
Well, that’s all I have for today. I hope y’all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
