Holiday Excess

 What a great holiday Thanksgiving is. A day to spend with family and friends. Traditionally a day to celebrate the harvest and to be thankful. The origin  of Thanksgiving is unknown but thought to be in 1621 at  Plymouth Massachusetts Thanksgiving wasn't always on the fourth Thursday in November either.  That didn't come about until the President that T bag founding father ronald regan hated the most, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who  in 1941, signed a bill into law making Thanksgiving a national holiday and settling it to the fourth Thursday in November. That worked out real good, except what about the Friday after Thanksgiving?

 Well since it is only 31 days until Christmas, and mindless amerika consumers, go totally bazubies about buying stuff for the holiday that's, all about a big white, bearded, man in a red suite that flies  around the planet in a sled pulled by flying reindeer, who goes down chimneys and leaves presents under a tree that the people who live in the house where the chimney is, killed and brought into the house, so that they could throw the tree away later and somehow this makes them think about a skinny man that was  nailed to some boards long ago, who they believe was born  in a barn around this time of year, and when he was born three wise men followed a star so they could bring Frankincense and Mirth, to where he and his parents were, and the mother was a virgin, and since amerikans want jobs, but they don't want to pay a lot for the stuff they buy  all the stuff is made in China by slaves...And here are a few fun facts about the holiday season...

50,000,000 Christmas trees cut down in U.S. each holiday season

30,000,000 Christmas trees that end up in landfills each year.

38,000 Miles of ribbon thrown out each year.

6,000,000 Tons of extra waste generated in amerika between Thanksgiving and New Year's
That's a lot to be thankful for...
