Awkward Stock Photos of White People Teach Us About Thanksgiving

Hey kids – so American Thanksgiving is this week, and you know what that means: a four day work holiday that’s all shopping malls and department stores now officially consider the foreplay to Christmas. While I’m only slightly cynical of the holiday, Thanksgiving really is the holiday to show thanks for what you are grateful for. Thankfully (see what I did there?), there is also HappyPlace’s article of the 15 most awkward stock photos of white people celebrating Thanksgiving so we can learn how our white counterparts celebrate: they burn a turkey! They shiv a turkey adorned with fall leaves while their wives wield a rolling pin in anger! They wear slightly creepy hairstyles while giving shoulder massages to father!

Us Asian Americans – hopefully – do things a little bit differently. While we’ve talked about Asian American Thanksgiving traditions in years past, we want to know: how do you guys celebrate Thanksgiving? And is it any different from how I celebrate Thanksgiving, standing around a turkey and Chinese food at lunch time dodging questions from uncles asking when you’ll get married?  No?  You’re one up on me, then.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
