Celebrating Thanksgiving

Hey guys! How was your Thanksgiving? How did you celebrate your Thanksgiving? And what did you guys made for your dinner? Today I want to talk about our Thanksgiving trip in Florida with John’s family!

Well first of all, what is Thanksgiving anyway? Thanksgiving is a national holiday here in America and it’s celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. From what I know the first Thanksgiving is when the Pilgrims invited the local Native Americans to share a meal with them. The first Thanksgiving in 1621 it’s celebrated for three days of eating, entertainment and hunting in honor of the Pilgrims first success harvest.

My first taste of Thanksgiving was on 2010 in the Philippines at my friends house but I don’t remember having turkey that day! LOL. When John and I moved to Thailand I made my first Thanksgiving dinner in our apartment with all of our friends. And when we move here in America three years ago we spend Thanksgiving with his family except last year. Him and I decided to just stay home here in Buffalo and just go out and find a place when they served Thanksgiving dinner and it’s perfect because I found a place where they served Thanksgiving buffet! If you guys want to do the same thing and don’t want to cook a lot especially if just you and your partner it’s a good idea to just go out. I found this place called Samuels Grande Manor and the food was good and lots of options! I do recommend to book it in advance because they are really busy during that time. This place is great for wedding venue and banquet for any kind of party! 

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday here in America. I like the fact that John can spend holidays with his family and stuff our face lol and just be lazy after eating mad food! 🙂 🙂 :-). My mother-in-law mad a lot of food as always. We had baked sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffings, mix vegetables, baked brussels sprouts, gravy, cranberry sauce and last but not the least TURKEY! Yummy! I normally cook at least one dish but this time my mother-in-law made everything. It was a good time and good food! LOL. 🙂 🙂 :-). 

What about you guys what did you have for Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear from you!


Keep in touch! 🙂 🙂 🙂
