Thanksgiving vs. Christmas

Written by PETA | November 20, 2007

Despite some of the morbid rituals that it’s often associated with, Thanksgiving has long been my very favorite holiday, because (unlike its overrated rival, Christmas) you don’t have to buy anybody presents for it. There are also not one, but two football games on Thanksgiving, which gives the day another powerful edge over the more popular December holiday (which is often embarrassingly devoid of sporting events), and its central theme—eating—is simple, but consistently satisfying. So, I put it to you that Thanksgiving is in fact the greatest holiday of all—or it would be, if they could only get over that whole unfortunate turkey thing. For more on that, check out this awesome ad we made a little while back to encourage people to give turkeys a break on Thanksgiving Day.

First off I no longer follow Atlanta used to like them until Mr. Vick ruined it! Now with that out of the way It’s the “Grey Cup” this weekend Sunday in Toronto 500pm eastern standard time. Please check it out! It’s the first time in history of the CFL that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are meeting up with the under dogslol the Saskatewon Rough Riders! Thats been that long that even our Great grandparents never seen the two together competing for the Cup. And those two teams have the Biggest fans only four teams in each division but hey it’s an exciting time for us. While everybody is celebrating Thanksgiving in the U.S. this is our happy place. You won’t be disappointed!! Long live animals Ingrid all the compassionate people in this world Jack and Footballminus the bad apples of the football league
