It has went very far from it's traditional meaning. Thanksgiving is supposedly a holiday to give thanks, but you are not giving thanks at all. Nowdays it is a holiday is where you go see some obligatory in law or relative and stuff yourself with turkey, watch Detroit play football, zonk out, and stuff your gut with some more turkey after that. The women have to do all the cooking, dishes, etc. while the men just gorge on the food. But the women get revenge the next day...Black Friday shopping!
Typical guy on thanksgiving: Ah, turkey was good...lets watch Detroit beat the Bears...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
