Happy Turkey Day! (Or, to our international readers: Happy November 25th!) November 25, 2010

Caveats about the political incorrectness of the holiday aside, Christina and I compiled the following list of things we are grateful for as single people this Thanksgiving:

1. Private time to eat all the pumpkin bread we want, unjudged.

2. Shared time with friends or family, or friends who’ve become our family.

3. The change in public attitude about marriage (and single people): ever-so-slowly-but-perceptibly for the better.

4. The U.S. Census Bureau, for announcing that over 50 percent of households are now headed by unmarried people.

5. Our pets, for thinking we’re gods.

6. Plumbing, and having the right to use it however we like (well, usually).

7. You, our Copious Readers, for supporting us and contributing your voices to what has become a true online community for singles’ advocacy.

Ever-Attentive and Copious Readers, what are you grateful for this Thanksgiving?

— Lisa (and Christina)

I’m thankful for being part of the vanguard of a major social change. And no longer being embarrassed about my single status.

Yay, Vanguard! Can we incorporate that into our singles-march slogan somehow? = )

The good ol’ internet ….. so that I can relax and read blogs like yours, and then read emails from different communities I’m on.

The web and emails. 🙂

…. and people that think like me 🙂

3. singlutionary - November 26, 2010

I wasn’t feeling very grateful on Thanksgiving to be honest. It is my least favorite holiday. I will second #2. We choose our families through our friendships. These kinships are slowly being more accepted and honored in our culture. I am grateful for that.
