We like to think of Thanksgiving as a wholesome day with family and friends enjoying each other’s company and extolling the many blessings we have had throughout the year. But in reality, it is often a day of great stress. Aren’t you thankful for having to clean your entire home, cook a ginormous meal that needs to all be done at the same time, do a ton of dishes, and make happy conversation with all your family (even though great Aunt Gladys is a bit of a wrench)? All while trying not to let on that you are one “So, when are you having more kids?” question away from a complete breakdown. Yeah, there may be a ton to be thankful for at Thanksgiving, but some things… not so much.
But if you are trying to out-do your brother-in-law’s brined and herbed turkey spectacular from last year by trying your hand at that whole fried turkey thing (how hard could it be?), then there’s one thing that you will definitely be thankful for; Insurance. Apparently, “firefighters responded to 1,630 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving in 2018 (the latest data available)—250% above the year’s daily average of 470.” That’s a ton of not-so-well-done birds!
