If you mistype that, which may have just almost happened, it’s “Spasmgiving!” Which…gross! Heaton Johnson came up with a new way to celebrate the canned meat and the Plymouth Rock landing at the same time. Because he is the best! Fun fact: Did you know Martha Stewart really enjoys Spam? SPAM FOR EVERYONE!

The other origins of Thanksgiving

What now?

Let us reach far back into 2011 and bring out this piece by Matt Sadler. It was the end of a series about how to structure out your Thanksgiving, and dang, was it both funny and useful. Here’s what to do after dinner and the following day.

Our advice for this very moment

Take a long nap. Tomorrow, you can decide what you want to do this weekend.

Before you zzzzzz…

Think seriously about buying a ticket to RVANews Live #005. The theme is booze, which means that your $15 ticket includes many samples of booze. After a holiday as big and family-centered as this one, we could all use a stiff drink.
