Thanksgiving is one of the most entertaining holidays to watch unravel on Twitter. It’s a day full of familial obligations, high-stress complicated meals (did anyone else know you have to thaw your turkey for several days?), drama, over-eating, and plenty of awkward questions. You spent the evening deflecting, counting all the things you have to be thankful for, and defending the fact that you’re still single, even though your cousin three years younger just tied the knot.
Not to mention the fact that most Thanksgiving dinners are followed by some intense Black Friday shopping – elbowing other soccer moms out of the way as you compete for one of the bundle deals for an Xbox One at Walmart.
Thanksgiving is a confusing holiday.
One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is watching the drama unfold under the trending #ThanksgivingFail on Twitter.
It’s exactly one week before Thanksgiving and Twitter is already lighting up with some comedic gold.
My family has a fun game of who can talk longest & yell the loudest, unfortunately I’m the only one aware of this game #thanksgivingfail

Went to thanksgiving hungover & napped under the coats on my Grandma’s bed. No one knew I was there & ate lunch without me #ThanksgivingFail

My brother was kind enough to give me the most “flavor-packed” part of the Turkey, then told me it was really the anus. #ThanksgivingFail

Unloaded the car on the driveway & forgot to bring the turkey in. Next day, I saw the raccoons had the best Thxgvg ever #ThanksgivingFail
