Being married to an American means I have an, almost, innate longing for the celebration that is Thanksgiving. Not being American, however, means it is a perpetual struggle to fully comprehend the enormity and, indeed, brilliance of this holiday. One cannot argue with Abraham Lincoln’s notion of a day of thanks which, I think, we can all learn something from. After all, Thanksgiving is free of religion and presents the opportunity to celebrate with loved ones and to celebrate in a wholly indulgent manner. I love it. And in honour of today, here’s some beautifully decorated tables to help you get in the giving thanks mood.
We’ll be attending our first proper Thanksgiving party in years at our friends’ house. And it is set to be truly awesome ( see how I used a quintessential American word?!?)
Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
