There is no requirement that you enjoy Thanksgiving Day. You are not forced to eat as much of that turkey as you can fit in you, or stuff yourself with stuffing. And, maybe you should have stopped at a single slice of pie, rather than the whole pie.
As you sit reclining on the sofa with your belt undone, passing the occasional belch and lord knows what else, you still have no requirement to enjoy it.
Following dinner your arguments with both your brother and your father over some football player and teams appeared as though the three of you had enjoyed far too much beer. And the argument with your little sister regarding the length of the dress she chose to wear for her date this evening almost turned violent. But again, there is no requirement of enjoyment.
However, when you and your friend return to your home talking of the days events as she drives, and you re-play the day in your head, heed my warning:
You are required to enjoy your THANKSGIVING DAY because it may never happen this way again. Even though you may forget how much a pig you made of yourself, you will always remember how much you love your mother’s turkey dressing. You will forever appreciate how strongly your brother and father defended their football choices, even though their choices sucked. Your little sister, who left the house looking like my grandmother may have dressed, might forgive you for ragging on her about her dress, but will always love you for caring.
Yes, you are required to enjoy Thanksgiving Day and hope you have many more to enjoy in the future.
