'Gossip Girl' is the only Thanksgiving content these Twitter users need

Thanksgiving celebrations usually include home-cooked turkey, cranberry sauce, and being with family and friends. For a group that is intensely dedicated, it means Gossip Girl.

The CW teen show that provided endless drama, intrigue, and ridiculous levels of luxury is being praised by some fans as the Thanksgiving show. You wouldn't think that our resident, privileged Upper East Siders would be the face of this holiday, but the beloved series has sprouted cult-like viewers to champion this annually.

Why? Gossip Girl's connection to Thanksgiving can be traced to one episode in particular, "The Treasure of Serena Madre." The cast sits around the Van der Woodsen dining table and the meal turns sour quickly. Tensions arise and secrets are revealed. Grievances are aired and brilliant one-liners are said: "Your sweet potatoes are bland." The song "Whatcha Say" is an icon in its own right, as it was used in the dramatic Season 2 finale of The O.C.

The Thanksgiving episode of Gossip Girl is unforgettable, for both the ridiculous content and execution that kept us riveted to our screens. Some of us aren't ready to let go of the delicious dialogue, the appetizing aesthetic and the rising suspense levels of the film.

The holiday of Thanksgiving has been dubbed "Gossip Girl day" by people. Some say they watch the show again in honor of GG day. Others say they listen to the same song over and over. The show invented Thanksgiving according to all of these statements. It's questionable but it shows how influential the drama is almost 10 years after the original ended.
