RAINRA Posted November 25, 2008 Share Posted November 25, 2008 Since this will be my first Thanksgiving as a vegan I am avoiding going and sorrounding myself around people chomping on a poor turkey. My co-worker is givng me sh** because he says I am being anti-social for not wanting to go and be there with family. I told him it is not that I don't want to be around family but I don't want to be there watching people celebrate a holiday in which a bird is killed as a fun and festive occasion. If turkey was not a part of the holiday and it was vegan food I would be there in a heart beat. I think Thanksgiving is just a terrible holiday and this year I don't want any part of the party who enjoy suffering. I prefer to hang out with fellow vegans who relate. Some people say you could show up after the meal but in my family Thanksgiving is the meal. Anyone else see my point?I don't avoid all family events just this one because dead turkey is the center of attention. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
