This year will be my very first Thanksgiving in the US ever and I am pretty excited about it, I have heard so much about this tradition! I have always loved friends and family gatherings around a huge table full of dishes, it’s to me the best way to celebrate any occasion and I can spend several hours in a row sitting still while enjoying my food and my company. I know I’m crazy!
