Thanksgiving In The UK

This isn't the post I was going to make today but I just shifted that post to tomorrow, which means that for once I got an entire week's worth of posts made in advance! YAY! It's been quite a while since I did that and it feels good to have everything taken care of.
Feels good to be able to relax
As you know it's Thanksgiving today. It's thanks to that, pardon the pun, that you probably aren't reading this post. Frankly I could put any stupid stuff up and no one would see it. Not that I'm actually going to do that. Instead I'm going to post about Thanksgiving. See, I read some interesting news that said that Thanksgiving is sort of becoming a thing here in the UK. A lot more Americans are living here now and they're eating Thanksgiving dinner. I've noticed over the past month or so that frozen turkeys are being sold in stores even though Christmas dinner (when we eat turkey) isn't for another month yet. Turns out part of it is for Thanksgiving.
God damn that looks delicious
There's actually an American ex-teacher who started growing pumpkins here 30 years ago to feed his students Thanksgiving dinner and now he gets a lot of sales this time of year. When you think about it selling pumpkins is a great idea for October and November. You sell a lot for Halloween and then sell even more for Thanksgiving. I should buy some turkey eggs and an incubator. I hear that's all Bernard Matthews started with.

Happy Thanksgiving folks! 
(next time you complain about different cultures invading yours remember your culture is invading other country's too. Of course I kid.)
