Why do some people insist on calling Thanksgiving “turkey day”. We’re supposed to be giving thanks to each other, not thanks to our turkey. Or one of my other favorites is “have a happy turkey day”. Does anyone really believe their turkey is happy? It’s had its head chopped off, slaughtered, plucked and now sits on someone’s table waiting to be cut up. That wouldn’t make me too happy. Can we please call it Thanksgiving again? Stop trying to be cute and clever. Leave the unhappy turkey alone and thank each other instead.
