Happy Evacuation Day 2012!
We all know that Thanksgiving is a bullshit holiday made up by Lincoln to try and re-unite the country, and we all know that the mythos around it only propagates the misconception that the Puritans and Pilgrims treated the Indigenous Americans humanely, but we don't want to give up our five-day weekend for this. What do?
I say we celebrate Evacuation Day
! Sure it's a few days off, but it was the reason Lincoln put Thanksgiving when he did, so I say it's close enough. So eat Turkey , be merry, and remember the British prison ships leaving the Hudson.
