Thanksgiving

Thursday, 25 November 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

This year we actually had a Thanksgiving dinner! (Quite a nice change from our usual trip to the orthodontist for John and Philip.) At St. Mary’s there is another American couple, David and Kim Kenley. They called a couple of weeks ago to see if we’d like to get together for Turkey Day. We readily agreed and had a lovely time with them. We had all the traditional foods, with the addition of brussel sprouts (which people here eat for Christmas).

David’s parents Bill and Marilyn are here visiting from Florida, so we got to share the day with them as well. They introduced us to the game Rummikub, which kept us entertained for several hours. John David has a killer instinct for the game and I had to work hard if I didn’t want him playing my tiles as well as his own.

Before today I had to rearrange my usual volunteer day at the Bridge in order to be free for Thanksgiving dinner. The people I was talking to about it seemed to know of the holiday Thanksgiving, but not necessarily when it was taking place. One lady expressed disbelief that we’d eat turkey at Thanksgiving and then go and have it again at Christmas time. (She may have a point.)
