Who doesn’t love Thanksgiving Day? It is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. So, basically, you are just thankful for goods and everything you get throughout the year.
For Horners, we had two Thanksgiving celebrations. First was with grandma and grandpa Wilson and aunt Melanie in Markle. The main dishes for Thanksgiving is turkey, noodles with mashed potato, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. They were just completely delicious. Thanks, grandma.. Probably, there is more food other than that for other families. But the dishes that should be made are turkey and pumpkin pie. Before eating, Grandpa said we should say what we were thankful for. I said, “I’m thankful for my American family, my exchange year, and all the food.”
Grandma cooked one big turkey and cut it into big pieces. I could hardly use my knife and fork to cut it. So, I decided to use my hands which was perfectly better. I ate a lot. Literally, a lot. The rest of the day was just remembering the turkey in my stomach.
The second thanksgiving was with the big family of Horner in Converse. We had a big meal, still with turkey.. There were fruits arranged like turkey. That’s so cute. Grandma made cupcakes with turkey icing. They were cute, too.YUMMY! Thanks, grandma..
Thanksgiving is a big national day, also because it’s close to Christmas. So after thanksgiving day, everybody starts decorating their houses and put their Christmas trees. They even do it before thanksgiving. Huh, people..
See you Mr. Turkey. Ich werde dich vermissen..
