After this election, are you dreading Thanksgiving? | The Tylt
This insanely divisive election has left many Americans dreading the holidays. After what Tom Blunt at Signature Reads called "the great Post-Election Blocking/Unfollowing/Unfriending of 2016," scores of people have decided spending time with relatives whose political beliefs conflict with theirs will just be too painful. But others argue if we skip the holidays because of partisan politics, we're just making the divide worse. What do you think? Vote below! 🦃
After this election, are you dreading Thanksgiving?
Especially because of Trump's victory, many Democrats are dreading spending Thanksgiving with their Republican relatives—but had Clinton won, the shoe might be on the other foot.
Everyone's worried it could get ugly.
Others point out Thanksgiving is a holiday based on gratitude—and no matter your political leanings, everyone can find something to be grateful for. Maybe this holiday could be a time for gorging AND healing!
It's certainly less divisive than many other holidays. Can we avoid politicizing gratitude?
Another way to avoid the dread: don't go home if you know family dinner will be a dumpster fire. That's what Friendsgiving is for.
