All of the Stages of Thanksgiving, as Told by Animals

Thanksgiving is HERE, and we all know that with all of the glorious turkey and cranberry sauce comes awkward family moments and the inevitable food coma. No matter where you're celebrating, you can count on your Thanksgiving looking a lot like this.

 

WAITING

The second you smell food cooking, it's time to eat, right?!? NOPE. Hours and hours of waiting.

FORCED HUGGING

Thanksgiving means reuniting with all of the family you haven't seen since last year. It's not like you're not happy to see them, but how many times do you REALLY have to hug your cousins from out of town?

 

IT'S TIME

AT THE TABLE

Chances are that you start eating before everyone has even sat down. You don't care about being rude. FOOD.

 

TIME FOR TURKEY

At long last, it's time to pig out like you never have.

STORY TIME

Even if your parents use the opportunity to tell your most embarrassing stories ever in front of your entire family…

FIGHTING SLEEP

Everything's going great, until you literally fall asleep in the mashed potatoes.

FOOD COMA

And just when you think you've fully recovered… you couldn't be more wrong.

 

THE DAY AFTER

12 hours later, you're still in full-on food coma mode and your parents STILL drag you out of bed Friday morning for Black Friday shopping.
