“Thanksgiving calories don’t count”

“Thanksgiving calories don’t count” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Thanksgiving dinner is an important part of the holiday.
     
“Calories don’t count if it’s your birthday, New Year’s Day, Christmas or Thanksgiving” was printed in the Chicago (IL) Tribune on January 1, 1982. “Thanksgiving calories don’t count….right???” was posted on Twitter by Leftysbetta on November 1, 2009. “Don’t forget…thanksgiving calories don’t count!” was posted on Twitter by nikki626 on November 26, 2009. “Thanksgiving calories don’t count!” was posted on Twitter by Anissa on November 24, 2011.
       
Related sayings include “Vacation calories don’t count,” “Birthday calories don’t count,” “Holiday calories don’t count,” “Halloween calories don’t count” and “Christmas calories don’t count.” A saying for after these events is, “So sad that in just a few days bread and dessert will have calories again.”
