Thanksgiving is right around the corner. And while that holiday might conjure up images of gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce for some people, the vast majority of Americans will spend the third Thursday of November drowning out the voices of their Trump-voting cousins with copious amounts of beer, wine, and tryptophan.
Despite the Hallmark-ification of Thanksgiving, the holiday is, by all accounts, insufferable, and luckily Twitter is here to offer some honest takes on Turkey Day to get us through the week. Using the the hashtag #HolidayDinnerIn3Words, the Internet shared its thoughts on the upcoming festivities.
Unsurprisingly, most people used the opportunity to vent their anxiety, fear, and frustration over the prospect of spending an entire day with their families, imagining a dinner consisting of xanax-filled foods, endless bottles of vodka, and more than a few pairs of “fat pants.”
If there was ever an indication of how far we've come as a country since colonial times, it's the dread expressed in these tweets below.
Stay strong, everybody. On Friday we can all go back to eating dinner alone in front of the TV like normal humans.
