OK, I know what you're thinking. Who in the world could ever hate a holiday as fabulous as Thanksgiving? Nevertheless, it's a reality to some, and I'm about to reveal what you hate most about Thanksgiving, according to your zodiac sign. Who knows, you might get some interesting clarity in the process, even if it's usually one of your favorite days of the year.

I could never judge someone for loathing Turkey Day, or any holiday for that matter. Though I'm personally a fan of the fall celebration, I can definitely imagine the drama that can go down. I don't care how festive and adorable this holiday is portrayed to be, things can get wild. If you're usually in the kitchen cooking up a storm, making sure your living room looks like Disney On Ice before your judgmental AF relatives arrive, or the one who has to separate your nosy aunt from one of your siblings for some reason or another, the stress could be palpable.

For all of those potential reasons and more, there's something each zodiac sign can't stand about Thanksgiving — so, in a way, I guess it's good it only happens once a year?

Aries: The Food Takes Too Damn Long

This isn't your first rodeo. Every. Single. Year. You have to wait hours on end for your turkey dinner. It's like, why bother showing up on time? My suggestion for this year: Eat a snack before you leave the house (and maybe even keep a few treats in your purse).

Taurus: The Food Is Never Up To Par

I feel your pain, Taurus. You're extremely particular with your meals, but, then again, you're a child of lavish Venus herself. Don't bottle up your emotions, and tell your great-aunt to step up her candied yam game.


Gemini: You Hate The Commitment

It's not that you hate celebrating Thanksgiving — you just can't stand the thought of having to be on time, let alone the idea of committing to one particular gathering. You much rather variety over tradition.

Cancer: The Guests Never Leave

No one is saying you hate Thanksgiving. Your biggest issue is not being able to snuggle under your fluffy covers after dinner, because you're too busy entertaining your guests until they decide to leave.

Leo: The Turkey Steals The Spotlight

Breathe, it's not the end of the world that you're not taking center stage. Your birthday will come around sooner or later, and it'll all be about you. Worst-case scenario, you can always call up one of your BFFs to keep you entertained over the phone.

Virgo: Nothing Is Ever On Schedule

No one knows how to take care of business like you can, Virgo. This is exactly why you should host Thanksgiving dinner at your place next year, agenda and all.

Libra: You Hate Talking About Yourself

I know you're a master socializer, questioning everyone around you and all, but what about catching your relatives up on what's going on with you? It's your turn to tell them everything you've gone through in the past year.

Scorpio: You Hate People

It's time for some face-to-face interaction, your favorite activity... Or not. Relax, Scorpio. Getting together with your loved ones once a year isn't going to kill you. Besides, you love a little gossip, don't you? Time to get your spy on.

Sagittarius: It's Boring AF

It's not that you hate getting together with your family every year, you just can't stand the whole routine of it all. You much rather spend the holidays backpacking through Europe. Oh well, there's always next year.

Capricorn: It's All Too Rambunctious

This holiday overwhelms you. Everything from the people, to the smell of 20 different foods, not to mention the dress code. The entire thing feels like a waste of time.

Aquarius: You Hate Having To Be Nice

Sometimes you're feeling Thanksgiving, and other times you're not into it at all. You loathe the thought of being nice to your relatives, just because you have to. In your opinion, if you're in a mood, why should you have to hide it?

Pisces: You Have To Pace Yourself

There's a time and a place for everything, and your family members don't need to see the party version of you. Save it for your Friendsgiving, Pisces. You won't regret it.
