Thankful @ Thanksgiving
As most of my bloggies know, I’m Canadian, which means that I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving the same time as Americans do. We actually celebrate it in October. Either way, if there is a break in the semester, I’ll take it.
I tried buying a train ticket to go back home like I did the year before, but when I was on-line I couldn’t an open seat! It would have been nice to be home for a little while, but I decided it wasn’t that big of a deal because christmas is around the corner. I wasn’t sure what to do for the break because Bethel doesn’t want students just hanging around school all weekend just starving! They instead incourage international students to find a friend willing to take them to their homes for the weekend. My friend Lauren invited me to her house for a classic American Thanksgiving, and I couldn’t resist. We watched the Macy’s Parade, cut down christmas tree, went black Friday shopping at 5am, and ate SO much food on Thanksgiving day. One of the best things was playing Apples to Apples and when I was winning, one of my opponents said “Wow, is this game made in Canada or something?” we checked it, and sure enough, it was made in Canada!
I’m so happy I went there for my first American Thanksgiving, they were SO hospitable and gave me a weekend to remember!
