Thanksgiving is approaching, at least for us Americans, and to help get in the spirit I'd love to hear about your holiday traditions and what you're thankful for this year.
A few things I'm thankful for:
- Crazy pets that keep me entertained.
- Technology that keeps us connected to friends and family far away.
- My Kindle and being able to check out library books anywhere.
- Safety during turbulent times.
- Hummus and falafel.
Thanksgiving at my house:
My family traditionally has kept very few traditions, and Thanksgiving can be a tricky holiday to celebrate abroad since it's tied to food which is often hard to get and often we still had school on Thanksgiving. I can remember many different meals, sometimes a local restaurant for Bolivian cuisine, or a meal with new friends when we had just moved to Hong Kong. This year I'm looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with some close friends because all our family is away (although soon to descend upon us for Christmas!).
