All about giving thanks
November 27th 2014 was my first thanksgiving in US, and I am really glad I was able to spend it the American way. My friend Lauren was so generous to invite me over with her family to the thanks giving lunch. Thanksgiving is really a time when the families get together, take time out of their busy schedule and just spend time together catching up and enjoying sumptuous meals. My friend took me to her grandparents house where all her other relatives were gathered. Each one of them had prepared meals like sweet potato with bacon, mashed potatoes, turkey stuffing, peas, corn and the roasted turkey. It was a fun filled atmosphere where everybody was gathered around the lunch table with their personalized name tags and Lauren’s grandma’s homemade delicious pumpkin cinnamon muffin (it was amazing).
Lauren’s grandfather said the prayers before we started our meals and relayed the message of giving thanks and being able to extend it every year. I was really excited to start my meal and relish the dishes on my platter. After we were done with lunch, I was overwhelmed to see the selection of deserts and pies. I had to try all the assortment of deserts- the apple pie, sweet potato pie, chocolate pie, pumpkin cream roll and the chocolate chip cookies. I listened to the old stories the family shared of their time in the house as children and the tradition of thanksgiving dinner/ lunch as I relished the food.After the lunch all of us were in a ‘food coma’ and then we started watching the dog show and the Macy’s day parade on television. Thanksgiving celebrations with the Drawbridge family reminded me of my festival back home called ‘Dashain’ which falls on October/September. It is also a festival where we celebrate victory of good over evil, food and family ties. The only slight difference is my festival involves a lot of rituals and ceremonies.
After such a wonderful time, I was really thankful to the whole family for inviting me to join them in their family lunch and treating me with warmth and great hospitality. And guess what I got a solar turkey as a thanksgiving present from Lauren’s grandparents which will always remind me of my first thanksgiving!
