Thanksgiving Grinch Alert! Angelina Jolie is apparentlyÃ‚Â refusing to let her family take part in any Thanksgiving festivities this year, because she believes the holiday to be “a story of murder.” Ã‚Â So now Thursday will just be another day in Bosnia for the Jolie-Pitt clan, where Angelina is filming her directorial debut.Ã‚Â In fact, she deliberately scheduled filming to ensure that she would be out of the country on the day.
“Angelina JolieÃ‚Â hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans,” an friend told Popeater‘s Rob Shuter. “To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn’t her style. She definitely doesn’t want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder. She gets soÃ‚Â grossed out by Thanksgiving that she has made sure her family will not be in America this year on Thursday.”
Angie, Angie, Angie. You got it all wrong. Thanksgiving isn’t a celebration of genocide (well, maybe turkey genocide). It’s a celebration of the vastÃ‚Â array of pies that are available in this great land! Whole families are brought together each year to exchange and compare pies. Then they will begin to argue over which flavor pie is the best, leading to fight at the dinner table about why the hell Aunt Sheila made rhubarb pie instead of pecan pie, because no one ever eats the damn rhubarb pie. And then sweet potatoes will be thrown, and you’ll remember why you only see your family once a year. It’s called tradition, Angelina!
