I know you've lived in Canada now for a while and are probably used to it, but I was just wondering... do you miss Thanksgiving in the U.S.?
I want to answer this out here on the main part of the blog, because I want you all to know that, YES, I do miss American Thanksgiving! This was our fourth Thanksgiving in Canada. The first year, two months after we arrived, we celebrated Canadian and then American Thanksgiving in November. The second year we celebrated both, but we went to SC to visit my family for US Thanksgiving. Last year, we only celebrated Canadian. It seemed silly to celebrate both, since we plan to live here for the rest of our lives. I thought we should only celebrate Canadian. But on US Thanksgiving Day, I regretted that decision! I was SO homesick! I'm 42 years old, and it's hard to shake 39 years of tradition! ;) So yes, I do miss some things about my American heritage, Thanksgiving included. And yes, I do love living in Canada. Sometimes I think I'm a Amerinadian . . . or would that be Canadamerican? LOL I love both my home country and my adopted country, and I try to incorporate a sensible amount of the traditions of each into our holiday traditions.
