If you have no idea what I’m talking about I refer you to Wikipedia. For all of the Americans (and apparently Canadians) out there, I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday. It’s essentially all of the great food you would get at Christmas a month early–plus you eliminate the stress of gift giving. And I suppose if you’re into sports there is a lot of American football that you can watch–I tend to ignore this part of the holiday although a few of the Brazilians that I know here have not. Personally, I’m all about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
And while Thanksgiving provides you with an excellent opportunity to gorge yourself on a ridiculous amount of food, it’s also a day to reflect on what you are thankful for. I know that I have a lot of things that I’m grateful for (don’t worry I won’t bore you with the details, although I will say that my family deserves a huge shoutout) and I encourage all of you to think about the same, even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving.
So, happy Thanksgiving wherever you are and hopefully you’ll all get to have a delicious slice of turkey and reflect a bit on some of the wonderful things you have going for you.
