While the holidays are supposed to be a joyful time of year it can also get pretty stressful when Christmas-themed activities bog down your schedule and you can’t figure what to get everyone. Worst, is buying thoughtful gifts for your colleagues. I mean, what do you get the people you try to avoid all year?
The answer is very simple: A generic gift card to a coffee shop. But things can get a little awkward when someone tries to send subliminal messaging through their gift or forfeits the tradition altogether. The sketch is by HSTSketchComedy, who previously did Hipster Thanksgiving.
Watch it here
Let me guess — you probably celebrated your Thanksgiving this year way before anyone else did right? Day-of turkey is just way too mainstream for people who don’t understand the concept of originality. In fact I bet you didn’t eat turkey. It was probably some exotic bird from Never Never Land that found itself sitting on your table. That poor beast was dining amongst hipsters.
Like the people at Harvard Sailing Team, I’m almost positive some people tried to add a twist to their turkey day like the friends in “Hipster Thanksgiving.” Whether it was changing up the typical turkey and stuffing meal or blasting dinner music from a record player… I know that there were some hipsters out there just waiting to post about their Thanksgiving dinners on their blogs. Which you probably don’t have the link to. They’re probably written under another name anyway.
Here are five signs that you’re a hipster at Thanksgiving.
1. You Instagram your dinner.
2. You engage in deep conversations whilst casually holding a glass of wine.
3. You wear flannel, a cat patterned sweater, or a low-cut Nirvana v-neck. The usual, appropriate Thanksgiving attire.
