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
A shitty "holiday" where you have to spend time with your family and act like you're enjoying yourself, when in reality you are just waiting on everyone to finish eating so you can get the hell out of there.

An ironic holiday where millions of people who claim there is no God take time out of their lives to give thanks to some as-yet undefined scientific principle. Only in America do people celebrate a math problem with a holiday, wherein they call all their religious friends stupid while thanking an exploded fart for creating the universe. Still millions more lament the fact that everything they have in life came at the expense of another human being (the native Americans), despite the fact that every society in the history of mankind has been the same.
A holiday where a select few celebrate by being thankful for what they have, rather than reveling in a self-induced guilt trip over what others don't have.
