Thanksgiving is quite possibly the most perfect holiday: There’s nothing religious about it. Not a single gift needs to be purchased or wrapped. It’s all about the food.
And yet, there’s only so much togetherness one person can handle. Moms in particular can only deal with so many kids and relatives in a single day, not to mention annoying husband questions over the course of a few hours.
The wickedly funny folks over at Someecards seem to get that. Which might just be how their Thanksgiving e-cards came to pass. Take a look at 7 Thanksgiving e-cards that perhaps speak just a little bit louder to moms on the day of thanks:
Save a turkey. Stuff a mother-in-law. 1 of 7Amen. Pass the brussel sprouts.
Thanksgiving is a lot like Christmas except you don’t get any presents for holding in your familial rage 2 of 7You do, however, get to drink tons of wine and have people assume it's only because it's a special occasion.
I really like reading what you’re thankful for. Said no one ever. 3 of 7Seriously. No one really cares.
Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same without Mom’s squash casserole and Dad’s thinly veiled contempt for Mom 4 of 7Ah, memories.
Sorry your child is playing a tree in the Thanksgiving play. 5 of 7If it's any consolation, he'll always be a turkey to us.
Let’s reconnect over Thanksgiving to awkwardly discuss why we only reconnect over Thanksgiving 6 of 7Or, let's not.
May the effects of tryptophan spare you from having to hear conversations about the effects of tryptophan. 7 of 7Can we make a vow to never, ever discuss tryptophan ever again?
