Today is a day I spend cooking. Our turkey is in the oven and I have to baste it every 30 minutes. I have a wonderful recipe that I have been using for several years now and it makes the turkey yummy every time. I also use my grandmothers stuffing recipe. I wrote it down so that I wouldn’t forget it.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday. It’s a day to relax and enjoy a good meal with family and friends. It’s a holiday that every American can enjoy, whether your family has been here for centuries or your family is brand new to America.
Some people outside of North America don’t get it. My husband and I were speaking to some Dutch people the other day. They spoke of pilgrims and such. Thanksgiving is more than what happened centuries ago. Thanksgiving is a time of warmth, and giving thanks for what you have and just living in the moment. I felt bad that they didn’t understand. Thanksgiving isn’t just an American holiday. Everyone has something to be thankful for and should set aside some time to get together with family and friends over a good meal.
Enjoy your day!
