Why Being a Vegetarian on Thanksgiving is the Worst

Thanksgiving is a day centered around eating, drinking and nitpicking your relatives. This trifecta creates a perfect opportunity to make fun of vegetarians and vegans. On Thanksgiving, your estranged Uncle demands that you justify your eating habits, your grandmother acts like you are personally doing this to spite her (even though you haven't eaten meat for 10 years) and every person in your family has suddenly become a nutrition expert over night. Even worse, she may not ever tell you, but you are stressing your boyfriend's mom out and people secretly think that you are being high maintenance. 

The best thing to do is keep drinking that wine, eating those potatoes, keep your head down and ride it out because after the holiday season, everyone will go back to not caring about your life choices.
