Happy Thanksgiving 2010
Thanksgiving is here! Can you believe it? Where has the year gone? It's been a very busy year, and it's not over yet! Things have been very here, at Czech Off the Beaten Path--at least for the writer (me). So time has passed very quickly!
Czechs don't celebrate Thanksgiving as a holiday as we do in the U.S., so Thursday will be just another work day here. But back home, my family's gathering together and baking and cooking in preparation for their Thanksgiving dinner. We are planning on connecting via the Internet today--I'm looking forward to being with my family at least in an electronic form!
Even though Czechs don't celebrate Thanksgiving, Jiri and I usually do have a celebration on the weekend. Our home is blended between American and Czech traditions and holidays, which is really nice--it's like having the best of both the Old and New Worlds. We will have some friends over on Saturday, and I'm cooking a traditional dinner. I'm really looking forward to our time together.
That's all for today! I would like to wish each and every one of you a beautiful and very happy Thanksgiving (even if you don't normally celebrate this holiday). We should celebrate Thanksgiving every day by being thankful for all the blessings we receive with new each day.
Have a great and happy day!
