I'm excited about this Thanksgiving.

I now go to school north of Dallas, but I am from Houston.
Due to lack of existing hours, I am being forced to stay in a dorm this year of school; so this means no pets.

I have all of my pets divided up between people. My gorgous pigeon is being housed by my ex girlfriend (who we are not on good terms, so I never get to see my pigeon anymore), but she is going out of town as well, so I get to pick up my bird and bring it to Houston with me. Also in the Houston area I have an old co-worker watching my scorpions and snake, which I will also get to go visit.

It should be a very nice holiday, I haven't seen any of my pets since August. Of course, it is going to very interesting driving five hours to Houston and back with my pigeon. grin

Normally I help cook for Thanksgiving, I look forward to the food, but I can do without the useless "fellowship" aspect. It's not that I don't like my family, but I have no real desire to be around them and pretend to care about what they've been doing all year when I haven't spoken to them since the last Thanksgiving. To me it's a senseless ritual of pretending to care to satisfy that shallow guilt one may birth by not keeping in touch with "loved ones". I merely get food, I say hello with pleasantry and humor, and I quickly head somewhere quiet where I can eat and read without being disturbed. This way I'm doing myself a favor by staying out of a draining psychic exchange, and I'm doing them a favor by not forcing them to talk to me, faking interest in my "bizarre" interests.

This year we went to my fiances parents. My favorite part was the drive, We passed dozens of cemeteries and several abandoned houses -Victorian houses. Next year we're giving ourselves time to stop along the way, so that I may capture these wonderful places on film.

I understand that you are new to Satanism, so I will make a meta-point here that seems to have not been made.

All questions that begin with the premise "what do Satanists...?", are false right out of the gate, unless it has to do with some obviously core and central principle of Satanic dogma.

In other words, unless it a matter of central Satanic dogma, the question presupposes some sort of member-wide agreement or uniformity or general tendency, when such a presupposition goes against a core tenet of what this religion is in the first place, a religion of radical individualism.

Questions of this sort are both ironic and wrong at the same time, without even knowing what the rest of the question is.

As Magister Svengali said long ago: "If I hear one more question along the lines of "do Satanists wear brown shoes?", I'll..."

Just a standard misunderstanding I've seen hundreds of times, that should be disposed of rather early in your quest to understand Satanism.

Replace "what do Satanists...?" with "what do humans...?", and you'll see the logical error, (unless it explicitly deals with core Satanic dogma, in which case it IS a valid question).

"Do Satanists like strawberries?" = "Do humans like strawberries?"

"What kind of cars do Satanists drive?" = "What kind of cars do humans drive?"

Etc.

I am actually quite new to the concept of Thanksgiving... smile
I am Italian and basically no Thanksgiving here... but, my partner is American, so I will enjoy my (her actually...) turkey.
And enjoy myself, but this happens every day. wink
Every chance to party is a good one.

One little known holiday in America is "Favorite Product Worship Day".

It happens every fifth Thursday, throughout the year, except if the Thursday falls on the 3rd, 15th, or 24th of the month.

People dress up like the packaging of their favorite consumer product, and use or consume it all day long (depending on the nature of the product), while singing (or reciting) their favorite TV commercial promoting that product.

Fanatics may visit the corporate headquarters of the company that manufactures the product, and wash and wax the car of the current CEO.

Excellent point!

May I add that questions beginning with "should I" are just as meaningless? Who would know but "I"?

But be warned! Last Favorite Product Worship Day I dressed as my favorite product, the Hebrew National Weiner. I was mistaken for a dick and the appellation has stuck.
