Thanksgiving Thanks: Day Eight: The United Kingdom
I am thankful for the United Kingdom. Not only have I visited twice and loved the country itself, but the UK has produced some of my favorite things and people. Doctor Who for one, which I explained in great detail a few days ago... (okay, I gushed a bit) Also Charles Dickens, the Beatles, David Tennant, Cadbury chocolate, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Sherlock, Wordsworth, Shakespeare, James McAvoy, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling, Monty Python, The IT Crowd, Ewan McGregor, ... I could go on and on, but I think I've hit the high points.
The United Kindom is also the home of the best accents in the world. I swear that an Irish accent will always make me smile, a Scottish accent will make me grin, and a British accent can make me melt. The UK consistently produces great actors, great dramas, and great literature- all things that I love. Add in great music and it's not hard to see why I'm thankful.
