I would like to thank the animal…

Giving thanks, as in holding still for a moment and being grateful for what you have got, is not a European tradition. In my youth, Christmas (cleansed from all commercial and Christian notions) served that purpose partially. I wish we still had such a tradition.

I would like to thank the animal that provided me with a few happy moments yesterday: the herring that was wrapped in a roll and covered in onion bits. When I eat chicken, I often also have such moments of gratitude for the animal. Is that weird?
