As a Brit, my knowledge of Thanksgiving is fairly rudimentary.

I think Thanksgiving is to British people what EastEnders is to Americans; we’re aware of it as an actual thing in the world without fully understanding what it’s about.

If you put me on the spot and asked me to explain Thanksgiving, I’d probably give you a revisionist’s history of events; there were some pilgrims who settled in America, they had a harvest, spread the word about religion, and then dropped all the heavy stuff, started feeling appreciative, and decided to feast on turkey, yams (whatever they are), pumpkin pie and eggnog (again, whatever that this).

Also, there was a 6ft holiday armadillo involved at some point but I can’t be sure when/where.

Anyway, I digress, because long story short, Thanksgiving is upon our friends over the pond.

Congratulations?

To celebrate the event, we decided to trawl through that overflowing reservoir of dirty stories and filthy anecdotes, Reddit, to find some of the best (worst) Thanksgiving stories.

Personally, I don’t have one – but I did come home p*ssed on Xmas eve one year and wee all over the Christmas tree.

I guess that’s the same thing?

Well, these stories are a bit like that, only with less wee and more vomit.
