Thanksgiving dinner is a big deal to 87 percent of the United States population, according to a Harris Poll study, because of the quality family time and delicious dishes served.
Well, we have some surprising news.
According to Harris Poll, who released their findings collected from Instacart on November 6, the ever-famous green bean casserole is secretly hated by 24 percent of the United States population and is only eaten for the sake of tradition.
What's even more shocking is that Instacart found that 21 percent of people stated that they secretly hated hosting Thanksgiving and 17 percent have regretted it. (Read: Now is the time to suggest hosting for your mom or dad to give them a break.)

This one's a huge surprise. Unless you're vegan or vegetarian, it just doesn't make sense. Hating the main dish served at dinner is just ... odd.

Whoever holds a grudge against pumpkin pie must hate Thanksgiving.
Sweet Potatoes and Sweet Potato Casserole (22 percent)

To be frank, secretly hating this dish is just rude. It's another excuse to eat dessert before you have the dessert! It's one of THE BEST side dishes out there—well ... besides mashed potatoes.
Green Bean Casserole (24 percent)

Although this one is fair, there are plenty of people who LOVE this dish! It combines a creamy sauce with a crunchy topping and disguises the taste of green beans!
Canned Cranberry Sauce at (29 percent)

Not the cranberry sauce ... (sigh). Maybe if it was made from fresh cranberries with sugar, they'd have a different opinion.
