i miss thanksgiving so much it breaks my heart but i can't imagine trying to simulate my family gathering and try to make the food for just me and my man who won't even understand.
aaww..that makes me so sad to read..even if he doesnt fully understand..he can try! we have to learn so much about living here and doing everything we are supposed to. I cant imagine not having thanksgiving..there is always so many things to be thankful for :) like turkey..and stuffing..lol
i don't know sonya, to me thanksgiving is about seeing extended family at my beloved aunt's house (who i lived with 4 years before coming to germany). without them it doesn't seem right.at least i get to show him halloween next month for the first time cuz we're taking the fall vacation and going to seattle. that's something: ) i'll grab a couple packs of stovetop stuffing - i love that stuff even if it's not the kind we ate at thanksgiving dinner. i still have a can of pumpkin so i'm making a pie this year - probably just for me because no one else in germany likes it. i'll bring it to work and see if anyone is brave.
I do understand..It's easier for me to do it when I had kids and they remember those things from home. It makes me happy knowing they will continue to do it with their own families..maybe even with a dutch wife :) I love that mix of cultures and foods.Have a wonderful trip home. I havent been back in 6 years..wow..6 years!
