Today is Thanksgiving Day in America, and one of the most common traditions here today is the one of feasting on turkey and all the fixings.
Although I”m actually in America today, I’ve spent many, many Thanksgivings away from home in another country. While Thanksgiving is not a holiday in any of the places I’ve spent the day abroad in past years….there has always been a special welcome for American travelers celebrating their holiday while in a foreign country. A special menu or celebration could usually be found. And it was nice to feel welcomed, so I am thankful for that!
Beyond that though, I like to take some time on this special day to reflect upon the many blessings in my life and to truly express how thankful I am for the opportunities I’ve had to travel to other countries and get to know other cultures.
But of course it’s always good to be at home for the holiday as well! Here are some Thanksgiving Day pics around my area here in Wisconsin.
We’ve been blessed with a beautiful, sunny day here which is free of cold and snow. Definitely something to be thankful for around here!
And the last bit of fun for today….my Thanksgiving Day shadow!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it in America, and Thanks You to those of you outside America for being there, for welcoming us, and for giving us a wonderful stay abroad.
