Thanksgiving is such an incredible holiday and although it's just only one day, passes quickly and it seems to be about the turkey, food and desserts, it is so much more than that. We all know all about the Pilgrims and Indians and all the history behind this great day. But let me tell you what an incredible perspective, as a foreigner, I have of this American Holiday Tradition. Getting families together, no matter where you live or what you do, sharing a beautiful evening for the mere purpose of being Thankful is a concept that transcends boundaries and ethnicities.
We try to live our lives to the fullest, work like maniacs, run around and fill our days will all kinds of activities, and most of us ARE thankful for all the blessings that surround us. But taking this single day to sit with family and friends, put everything into focus and acknowledge our blessings is something that I, being born in Venezuela, thank all Americans for sharing with me and my family. We have adopted your holiday into a tradition of our own. Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful THANKSGIVING DAY!
