Not a fan.

A lot of people seem to care about this one. They love the food. They love the parade. They love football. Not me. To me this holiday is just a roadbump between Halloween and Christmas.

What's it all about? Well, apparantly the Pilgrims had no idea there was winter in America. So when it snowed they naturally assumed their days were numbered. But lo and behold the Indians came to their rescue bringing turkeys and cranberries and allowing the Pilgrims to survive until spring.

The Indians would come to regret this.

So the whole thing is no food, then food. Jesus did that with some bread and fish and that was a miracle. We don't get that day off. Hell, as a country, we actually did something on the 4th of July but I don't have to travel cross-country to celebrate that.

I do like this picture though:

Mostly because it looks like Grover is going to devour a dozen people.

Go eat something.
