Happy Thanksgiving, Folks!

I know not everyone who reads my journal lives in the U.S. -- or even celebrates U.S. holidays, for those of you living elsewhere -- but I wanted to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all who care. It always makes me think of the excellent "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Thanksgiving episode, "Pangs," from the otherwise lackluster Season 4.


a ritual sacrifice ... with pie
BUFFY: With Mom at Aunt Darlene's this year, I'm not getting a Thanksgiving. Maybe it's just as well.

ANYA: Well, I think that's a shame. I love a ritual sacrifice.

BUFFY: It's not really a one of those.

ANYA: To commemorate a past event, you kill and eat an animal. It's a ritual sacrifice, with pie.

Also:
WILLOW: Buffy, earlier you agreed with me about Thanksgiving. It's a sham. It's all about death.

BUFFY: It is a sham, but it's a sham with yams. It's a yam sham.
So ... I hope you all have a very happy yam sham and enjoy your ritual sacrifice with pie.
