It’s not an insignificant amount of work that goes into making Thanksgiving, well, the best.
And unless you’re the one who plans on spending their Thursday basting, mashing and otherwise preparing for that all-out food-for-all, then you better not be showing up empty-handed. Now, we’re not at all saying you need to spend a fortune. But in the spirit of the day, your hosts better damned well know that you appreciate them putting in the effort.
That’s where we come in. Having combed the Internet so you don’t have to, we’ve compiled some of the finest ways to praise your own pumpkin pie purveyors.
You could join the fray of rabid consumers... or you could catch up on your Kempt, with a few timely reads from the archives that should help you make it through the weekend—like some prescient sweatpants advice, football talk with John Elway or something magical we like to call T.Hanks-giving. Without further ado:
If you haven’t already, it’s time to get started on some epic gluttony, football watching and an appropriate amount of familial rabble rousing. Let’s also take a brief moment to recognize how awesome this photo of Marilyn Monroe is. (Sexy Pilgrims do exist!) Gentlemen, start your carving knives.
Thanksgiving Day is so close, we can nearly taste it. Mr. Hitchcock is so excited, he’s overcome his aversion to birds. It’s undeniable—the holidays are upon us.
Time to get started on a good six-week bender of reckless food consumption, unabashed merriment and some family-appropriate debauchery. Please leave the resolutioning and course correcting for January 2, 2013.
