Thankful?

Thanksgiving Day is approaching and I always liked and respected its idea. Unfortunately, Romanians took what's worst from the American advertised traditions and the best example is Valentine's Gay, the pretext to fuck, to buy cheap "presents" and be desperate to find a date with the excuse that you don't want to spend Valentine's Gay all by yourself. It doesn't matter that we already have our OWN celebration of love [Dragobete], finding pretexts to be false is always good.

They should have taken Thanksgiving Day instead, because it's a day of introspection, of awareness, of coming close to the people and things that mean the most to you. I guess this isn't en vogue around here. So I will celebrate it without a traditional dinner or anything of the sort, simply in honor of the people and things that I am grateful for.
