A Thanksgiving feast

November 22, 2009

First, I want to apologize for not being able to update my blog as frequently recently; I’ve been swamped with work. Today’s post will also be short but I’ll compensate by writing a longer post next time.  

The American holiday, Thanksgiving, will be celebrated this upcoming weekend so just wanted to talk briefly about it.  Thanksgiving is a big deal for Americans and Thanksgiving dinner is the highlight, comparable to the celebration and dinner eaten during the Lunar New Year by those of Asian descent.  Just like the Lunar New Year for Asians, Thanksgiving is a time when family members gather to give thanks for all that they have.  Even though there are variations, here are some of the more traditional dishes eaten during this day:

I personally prefer pumpkin pie, which is also my favorite Thanksgiving dish, over apple pie!


 One thing that I am thankful for this year is having you as a loyal follower of my blog!  Thank you for your continued support!   

Lastly, to those of you who do celebrate this holiday, Happy Thanksgiving!
