This day is my favorite day, my high and holy day, the best day of the year. A gluttony holiday. Here’s the deal. Doesn’t matter who you are, your favorite imaginary sky friend (or lack thereof), your ancestry and skin color, if you are fresh off the boat or your forebears arrived with Columbus or your forbears greeted Columbus, if you have feet on the great American soil you get to participate in a day of food, family, friends, and gratitude. Leave the baggage behind, stuff that turkey (Or tofurkey, if that’s your game), and dig in!

For folks who are not in the United States, I highly reccomend Thanksgiving, try it on a basis of cultural exchange. (It’s about the only good culture we have to share with the world, so enjoy it.)

Also, I made a timelapse video of this painting, check it out here.
