Person A can’t cook to save their life, yet attempts to cook Thanksgiving dinner and burns the turkey. Feeling bummed, Person A refuses to leave the comfort of the couch. Person B decides that this is not a problem and orders a pizza for A and B to eat while watching Netflix.
A and B both dislike their families. With Thanksgiving coming up, they tell their families they are going to see the other family for the holiday. They stay home and eat mashed potatoes with gravy out of a metal mixing bowl while watching Netflix.

For many of us, the world is a dark and scary place right now.
This Thursday, November 24th, is when the USA celebrates Thanksgiving–which is kind of weird, to be honest, considering we’re essentially celebrating the genocide and subjugation of native peoples. What we tell our schoolchildren instead is that we’re commemorating the Native Americans taking pity on the dumb white colonists who didn’t know how to farm and were thus starving. Actually, no, we tell them they just had a big feast together, because history is written by the victors.
But I digress.
I don’t know about private schools, but in public school–especially in the earlier grades–we always made Thanksgiving crafts and read Thanksgiving books and, inevitably, got together as a class and made lists of what we were thankful for. When you’re in kindergarten, you’re mostly thankful for recess and snack time. As you get older…well, some things never change. Once we’ve graduated and moved on, when we’ve become adults, we often forget to be thankful for what we have. Friends and families meet to share a meal and pray and give thanks, but we don’t make lists anymore. There’s no physical reminder for us to hold onto until the next November.
So let’s make a list together.
From now until November 27th, send me an anonymous ask telling me what you’re thankful for. It can be anything–a show, a fandom, a person, your imaginary pet chicken, whatever. I’ll publish them under the tag #AnonsAreThankfulFor. Whenever you need to remember that the world doesn’t completely suck and life isn’t entirely hopeless, you’ll have a whole list of asks to turn to.
It’s important to remember that we’re all people, and we’re all in this together. I’m not saying we should reach across the political aisle or compromise our values; what I am saying is that we need to keep seeing each other as fellow human beings. This Thursday, families divided by the election will meet together. It’s going to be a difficult holiday for many Americans.
Please share this post. The more the merrier! (I can hear my inbox screaming now.) No matter where in the world we live, we are affected by the political climates of other countries. Even so, we can make a safe space for ourselves. We can remind each other that, even now, especially now, there are things to be thankful for.
