Thanksgiving – Christmas – Confusing for a Brit


I hope it snows


I have lived in the US since 1995 so you would think I would be used to Thanksgiving now…..wrong! Every single year, as Thanksgiving approaches, I panic.

In my mind I am preparing for Christmas and all my gifts must be bought before the last Thursday in November. Crazy!

I shop for the Thanksgiving meal, which confuses me even more. Yes I know, I should be used to it because I have been here for sixteen years, but I lived in Europe for 38 years with no Thanksgiving.

I think this year may turn things around though. My family will be spending Thanksgiving in Vail. Someone else will be shopping for the Thanksgiving meal and I will just sit down and enjoy it.
