Last year being my first Thanksgiving in the US, we went traditional with a stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, apple cider etc. We got together with friends in Berkeley for a potluck. There was so much of food that we ate it over a period of time that extended from lunch to dinner and beyond, as we watched 2 movies back to back.
This year we had a veggie Thanksgiving with our Berkeley friends. This year, the celebrations (read eating) lasted for over 12 hours. We watched 3 movies, played card games, cooked and stuffed ourselves at regular intervals.
Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season which ends with New Year. So I guess it is time to take down the Fall decorations and look forward to the next big celebration – Christmas!
