Australian Hipsters Celebrate Thanksgiving as Christmas Becomes “Too Mainstream”

Surry Hills man Barry Corker, who hasn’t left his home suburb since visiting Bondi to renew his Icebergs membership, is among a growing number of Australians planning to celebrate the American tradition of Thanksgiving tonight

“Everyone in Australia does Christmas – it’s so predictable,” Corker said. “I’ve never been to America and I don’t know any Americans in person, but I only drink Pabst Blue Ribbon and I’m thankful for that, so it makes perfect sense I would celebrate this day with a free-range vegan turkey.”

Corker’s planned festivities come less than a month after he ironically went trick-or-treating and just a month before Hanukkah, where he plans to “spin the dreidel all night long”.
