A quick thanksgiving themed rant.

I’m not American and so thanksgiving does not really effect me apart from what I read about it on the multiple American blogs I follow and pinterest. However in the past week I’ve been getting more and more annoyed about all of the “fun” turkey themed outfits/nail art/cake decorations etc.

For example:

I don’t understand why anyone would celebrate the fact that 45 million turkeys are going to be killed and eaten on this day. Dressing your children up in turkey t shirts for thanksgiving is just disgusting and so is giving them cakes with cute little turkeys on them. Why don’t you explain to your children exactly where their thanksgiving meat has come from and the quality of the bird’s life?
