Thanksgiving is the greatest American holiday.
No presents to buy, no fasting to do and no other obligations to attend. It is a day dedicated solely to feasting and to the belief that the best way to celebrate our great country is by eating a selection of the bounty that it has to offer. Oh, and it gave rise to the Butterball Hotline, a free hotline you can call to get expert help troubleshooting your inevitable turkey cooking disasters.
You wouldn’t find that in Europe!
Here is a great clip of President Jed Bartlet from the West Wing on why the Butterball Hotline makes America Great.
Happy (slightly belated, my internet was down all day) Thanksgiving and God Bless America!
