So the day started with somebody telling me the following story:
"We, Americans love our heritage! I overheard a fellow American explaining the meaning of Thanksgiving to our local day workers. He said when the pilgrims from Europe got to America, they started farming. During the first fall they invited the local Indians to have a meal together. In that area there were lots of wild turkeys so that's what they ate and hence we celebrate Thanksgiving with turkey every year."
You surprised poor day workers were confused??? :))))
Yes-yes, today the Americans celebrate their Thanksgiving, some of them even know why! Our wonderful chef and galley staff presented us with this amazing meal tonight! Green bean casserole with fried onions, nice turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes, fruits and pumpkin and apple pie! Sarcasm aside, there are indeed sooooo many things we should be thankful for!
To all my American friends, I want to wish you Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the turkey tonight and the shopping frenzy tomorrow! Just remember, in this part of the world many children will go to sleep in dumpsters hungry or sick tomorrow while you fight over expensive toys in your stores...!
