No-Thanks-Giving – skit about Thanksgiving

skit about thanksgiving


It’s Thanksgiving. That same wonderful Holiday that comes round every year when all the family get together, and lovingly give thanks for all their blessings and eat some succulent melt-in-the-mouth turkey, tenderly made by mom. Well, that’s what they’d like you to think, wouldn’t they?  What’s the reality? Grandma is in tears, the kids are rolling their eyes and playing on their phones, mom’s ever so dry turkey just won’t go down even after that fiftieth chew and half the family is M.I.A. in this skit about Thanksgiving for nine people.
