More on Thanksgiving
From warm memories of traditions to that one time grandma ruined the gravy, everyone has memorable holiday moments. For Circa Survive vocalist Anthony Green, his best memory stretches all the way back to his childhood.
“When I was younger, I had really bad respiratory problems and would always end up in the hospital around the same time,” Green begins. “When I was nine, I was in the hospital with pneumonia and I was so bummed that I couldn’t be home for Thanksgiving.
“Around dinnertime, my three older brothers and my parents showed up with some of their friends and all the fixings of a home-cooked turkey dinner. They stayed with me well past visiting hours, laughing, telling stories and making me feel right at home. Having my whole family together like that was one of the best memories I have of Thanksgiving as a child. I look forward to giving my kids the same kind of memories.”
However, not everyone has fond memories of Thanksgiving past including Emarosa vocalist Bradley Walden.
“Thanksgiving is always a stressful time for any family that’s not in the movies,” Walden says. “Don’t get me wrong, I love food, but people are crazy around the holidays. I don’t think I’ve ever had a normal Thanksgiving. There was a year the turkey was still frozen on the inside, so we had to eat steak and potatoes. There was another year where I puffed up on my stepdad because I thought he hit my mom—turns out he just dropped the turkey—but I got mad and threw the potato peeler at the window and broke it (the window, to clarify).
“Another ‘worst’ year was when my sister went missing during the day; mind you, she was only six at the time. Everyone was so busy with holiday festivities. We ended up calling the police and searching the entire neighborhood for her. We found her under her bed, where she had fallen asleep playing hide and seek. Needless to say, if nothing burns down and the cops aren’t called, it’s a decent Thanksgiving.”
