You can blame it on the advertisers, or massive shopping directives by retaliers and marketing magnates, parades with balloons in New York, television, an artistic rendition of a more robust Saint Nicholas now named
BUT in reality if you call it Turkey Day
Or if you take a bite of your meal (be it vegetarian or poultry)

Maybe after looking at these proclamations you will start to say:
It is a Day of Thanksgiving
Santa, or the onset of cooking show or reading material, or the absence of prayer in schools, or the rewriting of history, or the disadvantage of the treaty makers over the indiginous signers or this or that.
