First things first. Christmas is 100% the most important holiday we have in the UK. Yeah, Halloween is wild, and Easter is swell. But, Christmas is definitely the best one.
But what Americans have going on with Thanksgiving is quite nice too, isn't it? And it's nothing to do with religion, which means everyone can get involved. How wonderful!
Now, before I go any further, I am in no way suggesting we replace Christmas with Thanksgiving. I'm simply saying there's room for both because wouldn't it be better to have two turkey dinners a year?
So here are 17 reasons us Brits should be getting stuck into Thanksgiving too.
1. All the pies. At a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, you'll usually be served at least one of the following pies: pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie or cherry pie. And when I say "at least", I mean you'll almost definitely be served all four pies.
2. Sweet potato casserole is one of the most confusing side dishes you'll ever experience. Not that common over here, but an absolute staple in American households on Thanksgiving. It's basically mashed sweet potatoes mixed with sugar and then covered with marshmallows that have been grilled to get them all gooey. Is it a side? Is it a pudding? It's both, mate.
3. Thanksgiving is a way of letting everyone know that it's okay to start getting riled up for Christmas. The second it ends, shove that sweet potato casserole pan in the dishwasher, and get your Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas CD playing on repeat.
4. Plus, Thanksgiving gives you something to do in between Halloween and Christmas. No offence, Bonfire Night, but we need something bigger and better to fill the gap between our two favourite holidays, and a turkey dinner does a far better job than a couple of lacklustre sparklers.
5. It's an excuse to watch Thanksgiving-themed episodes of your favourite TV shows. Erm, Modern Family's Three Turkeys will never not be funny.
6. Plus, the Thanksgiving films. Planes, Trains And Automobiles should be getting more than just an annual viewing, if you ask me, but that's neither here nor there.
7. Not that you've ever needed an excuse to day-drink... but if you did, Thanksgiving would be a good one.
8. Getting together for a Thanksgiving dinner is basically just a good excuse to see your family. You know - the family you've been ignoring for the rest of the year.
9. Or, if you choose to spend it with your friends, Thanksgiving means you have a whole day set aside for eating and boozing with your best pals.
10. Green bean casserole is another side dish that our friends across the pond wouldn't dream of leaving out of a Thanksgiving feast. Creamy, cheesy green beans covered in crispy onions are better than non-creamy, non-cheesy green beans that are not covered in crispy onions, and I won't be told otherwise.
11. Thanksgiving decorations are always adorable. I've never met a pom pom turkey I didn't like.
12. Leftovers sandwiches. Ross Geller gets it.
13. Unlike Christmas, Thanksgiving isn't a time to give and receive presents. So you can forget about manically traipsing the High Street in an attempt to get something for Uncle Reg.
14. But if shopping is actually something you enjoy, Thanksgiving dinner is precisely what you need to get your energy levels up in time for those scrums you'll undoubtedly end up in on Black Friday. It falls on Friday 29 November: the day after Thanksgiving.
15. Like I said before, wouldn't you rather have two roast turkey dinners per year as opposed to just one? That's just simple roast maths.
16. There are so many places in the UK that do Thanksgiving dinners these days, so you can skip all that cooking and just do the easy bit aka stuffing your face with booze and turkey.
17. And finally, giving thanks is such a nice thing to do. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if we shouldn't be doing it every day from now on?
