Thanksgiving, hands down. Less stress, better food.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

They're both good. They're two different things and one isn't better than the other.

Well every holiday has fans. Christmas is king for now, a little light before the dark doldrums of winter.

MeMyselfandIandYou said...

Turkey Day for sure!

Brayson87 said...

Also I'm not a f*cking foodie, and even if I was people still stuff themselves just as much at Christmas as they do at Thanksgiving, so what's the difference? Plus you get to do gifts at Christmas.

Do Tell said...

I don't give a shit about Christmas, it isn't my holiday. Thanksgiving is ok.

For me, one is in laws and one is my blood family.


But, I like the Thanksgiving food better.....but, as @Brayson mentioned...gifts....hmmm.

I am with the why choose, people :)

CHRISTMAS!!!! Love the lights on houses, decorations up everywhere, parties & get togethers, the gifts (giving & receiving), awesome sales, and making new memories with my family & friends ... I could go on, but won’t. ;o)

Christmas.....Santa gives me bunch of money every year !

Brayson87 said...

Think of it this way, how many Thanksgivings can you remember vs how many Christmases? Then again Christmas can be way shitter than Thanksgiving on average, so maybe Thanksgiving is the safer bet.🤔

Village Guru said...

I'm with @Zebra Seasoning. I don't have to buy any gifts except for myself.

Robyn S said...

I don't celebrate Christmas, so have to go with Thanksgiving by default.

Mooney said...

Both. Both are fantastic. It’s about quality, fun family time. No shopping. Great food, great atmosphere and family.

Vita said...

Outside of shopping stress, I love almost all things Christmas.

Thanksgiving. Day off work, don't have to buy presents, holiday for all (not just one group of people).

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

Both Holidays are equal to me -- as long as it's only my wife and grown children.
NO IN-LAWS!

So peaceful and relaxing with just immediate family.

Sigh!

=)

No Thanksgiving in the UK but it seems like a nice event with families and friends getting together whatever their religion or ethnicity. We get two days off at Christmas. I’m a sucker for the old fashioned Christmas that I was brought up on with the school nativity plays, carol singing, mince pies and getting excited as village turned on the Christmas lights. Sadly in my line of work, Christmas is busy and often heartbreaking time with alcohol, winter weather and people doing stupid things. We get two days off at Easter. I’m not a fan of turkey so I’ll go out on a limb and say Easter is my favourite, because of chocolate, and spring lamb, spring flowers in bloom and more chocolate.

Neither

Christmas .

Unknown said...

As an American Jew I'd have to say Thanksgiving. Kind of a presumptuous question...

Hotbox said...

Neither. Halloween beats them both.

Christmas

Thanksgiving. My sister cooks and she is a wonderful cook.

rabbit said...

Neither. Three days of being inside with family. Then shoppin or return the crap nighmares. It's better in Mexico, everyone parties outside all day and into the evening.

GentleBreeze said...

Twelve Days of Christmas. Throw in Hannukah and you've got another 8 days of party, food, booze, gifts, hugs, friends, family, music, worship, concerts, good vibes and all based on a spiritual belief!

OKay said...

Christmas is a billion times better than Thanksgiving. Then again, I'm Canadian and we don't make a huge deal out of it like Americans do. What IS all the fuss about, anyway?

Valerie said...

Christmas is magical ... Thanksgiving is just about eating.

Vita said...

Red Velvet Boots-- Happy upcoming Birthday!

auntliddy said...

To a usual host of both occaisions, they are both fun but the work to put in is killer, so to me, they are pretty much the same. A blur of shopping, cooking, table setting and food.

Kansa said...

Thanksgiving. Hands down, the best. Not everyone celebrates Christmas, but most people celebrate Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a nice one. And if you live in a place which doesn't celebrate it, there's nothing wrong with inviting the neighbors or work colleagues over to have it, even if it isn't on Thursday. Here in Belgium, we tend to celebrate it on the following Saturday, because the kids aren't out of school on Thursday.

Thanksgiving.
My best friend had a stroke five years ago, this coming Christmas. She came off life support New Years Day 2015 and was gone by January 8th.
Sorry to say it, but I don't care for Christmas any longer. As soon as the stores start getting decorated, I start sinking. This year is started October 15th.
Sick n Sin Mel, always.

Christmas is the birth of the Lord so that's the answer.
