I want to wish all my American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving! May we take time to thank God for the many blessings we have been given.
Growing up, Thanksgiving was a very low key holiday for my parents and brother and me, as we didn’t live near any extended family. We always shared a meal with close friends. One particular year, our neighbors’ house was destroyed by a pipe that burst, so we had them over for dinner.
The following year, the same friends had us over while our house was undergoing a big DIY renovation project. (It took almost two years because we did all the work ourselves and paid for supplies as we had the money.)
Now that I’m married to a guy who has tons of relatives, our Thanksgivings have suddenly become much busier.
For those of you who live in the United States, what are your favorite Thanksgiving memories, and what are you doing to celebrate this week? If you live in Canada, what did you do this year on Canadian Thanksgiving?
To all my loyal international readers, I would love for you to share about the holidays that are unique to your country.
Looking forward to hearing from y’all. The photo on the left is of last year’s Thanksgiving table. I’m planning to post new photos tomorrow.
