Mmm...go down to the restaurant to have a nice one person thank giving dinner and then treat your self to a good movie, in the cinema.
You're blessed, rejoice in it. As we all know, the more family, the greater drama, histrionics, & also freeloaders & moochers. Have SOME fun-listen to some great classical music. Order in from a great restaurant or better yet, have a sumptuous capon meal w/oyster stuffing, long grain rice, salad, & a sweet pumpkin pie. Take a long sumptuous bath in some nice Egyptian Musk or Night Queen perfume oil. Rejoice in this day, YOU ,not family, make Thanksgiving. You are a significant person, in & of yourself!
I hated Thanksgiving as a child, because my mother had such an unrealistic idea of what the day should be, and made the family miserable trying to live up to it. So, as an adult, I always spend the day alone, with my dogs. I cook food that I like, spend the day in my jammies, watch whatever's good on Netflix, and nap. It's a very quiet, pleasant day.
Even when I have offers to go to someone else's house for Thanksgiving, I much prefer to spend it alone.
I've done that. I purchased a full Thanksgiving meal from a local store that specializes in quality meats. On the day of Thanksgiving, I watched the Macy's parade, to get in the holiday mood, The coffee was brewing...
Afterward, I listened to music on my Bose for two hours, while I watched the leaves fall from the tree, through my big picture window. As I did so, I sipped a mimosa. Next I wrapped Christmas presents and assembled the base of my Xmas tree. Meanwhile, the music is still playing on Pandora.
I then set the oven to 350 to warm the delicious meal. At 2:30ish, I open the Pinot Noir and relax as I wait for my meal. I enjoy the aroma of the turkey, the sweet potato casserole....Yum.
I pour myself a glass of wine, relax, and feel thankful.
When the meal is ready, I dig in and love every bite.
I had a lovely thanksgiving, and so can you. Just think outside the box and you will do fine, probably better than fine! Happy Thanksgiving!
P.S. The picture above is from that Thanksgiving Day.
Bose and booze lol cant go wrong there. Sounds like my T-day. Im listening to Spotify, having coco, coffee and looking forward to a tv dinner. Pinot sounds ok but rather a s. african port. So many people in dire straits a person has to be thankful
Lol. I wish you had gone to a good meat market, but you've got the booze and the tunes, so you'll be good. Indeed, I am thankful for the food, warmth and comfort I enjoy every day. Happy T-Day!
EXACTLY, Bose is the best player by far. Thanksgiving is so FUN & RELAXING alone.....

Why do YOU celebrate Thanksgiving?Seems like a pointless day. Have holidays just become about food and gathering? If so aren't those things we should and can be doing year round?

Do atheists/agnostics celebrate Thanksgiving Day?Historically, Thanksgiving had roots in religious and cultural tradition. And, if they do, who do they give thanks? The picture attached here shows the "Then & Now" before meals, which is quite true.
