there are STILL people from the U.S. surprised that they're the only one celebrating thanksgiving

It reminds me something that I read on twitter recently (don't remember who wrote it): one of the most shocking thing for someone not from the U.S going there is that U.S people think their experiences and their culture are universal.

@ShadyFennec A lot of culture in the U.S., especially culture surrounding holidays, is incredibly commercialized, so it's easy to look at other countries, see that they have McDonald's and Coca Cola, and assume that their culture is really similar to yours.
