Thanksgiving seems to be a pretty big holiday, am I right? What, you ask, didn’t I already know? See, the thing is this: I’m from Europe. And believe it or not, but we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here. In fact, most people don’t even know such a thing exists. Want to know how I first got in touch with this huge holiday? OK, I’ll tell you. But don’t laugh please. I first saw it on According to Jim. Remember this show? Yes, I know. So five years ago. But I still love it and watch old episodes all the time. Now, back to Thanksgiving. There was this episode where everything was just “turkey this, turkey that” and a lot of cooking and pie was involved. Well, and that’s where I got to know all about the best foodie holiday of the year! Slightly embarrassing? Yes. But at least I now know the importance of it and remember every year to be thankful for everything I’ve got in life.
But knowing about it doesn’t necessarily mean understanding it. Because I never grew up with all the traditions I had no idea that it’s really necessary to have a huge array of pies on for Thanksgiving dinner. (Though I wouldn’t say no to such a feast!) Or that there are thousands of ways to craft something involving turkeys. How important the actual turkey on the thanksgiving table is. How important Thanksgiving in general is (I never thought there was anything even remotely comparable to Christmas!).
