Teaching the English how to give thanks

67% – Hell yeah! I’m having a big bash and educating the masses.
25% – I don’t know, but I’m so homesick that all I wanna do is eat Mac and Cheese or Hershey’s Peanutbutter Cups… and I want to talk to my Mom.
8% – Nope, when in England, do as the English do.
0% – I’m going back home for Thanksgiving! WOOP!
0% – I’ll have turkey, but it’s going to be a quiet one this year.
The results of the Thanksgiving poll are in!! It seems the majority of you are determined to, not only celebrate, but drag English people along for the ride. A whopping 67% of you held your very own Thanksgiving bashes. Hoorah!!
I had a few people over for Thanksgiving dinner (English neighbors and stuff), and it was awesome. I could do no wrong because I’m ‘the expert’ (ha!). If anyone corrected my pronunciation or terminology, I ‘won’ because it’s my holiday and so everyone just went along for the ride. And by the end of the night, some of the Brits were pronouncing things the American way… y’know… for authenticity
Also, by the end of the night, everyone seemed agreed that England should seriously consider adopting Thanksgiving as a holiday, too.
It’s only a matter of time now… we must keep educating the masses!!
