Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November each year in the United States. It’s a public holiday generally celebrated with family. Friday is also a public holiday too, but it’s better known as Black Friday, because it’s the day when people usually go shopping mad to pick up bargains. People will queue overnight at major stores just so they can be the first ones in the store to pick up bargains.
This was my second Thanksgiving dinner I’ve been to, same crowd, this time in Del Mar. There were about 20 guests, so as you can imagine, it took some time to prepare all the food but I wasn’t preparing it. Traditionally, turkey is eaten on this day, but there was duck and chicken too, a selection of stuffing, vegetables, and apple crumble and ice cream to finish it off.
I tend to like days where you can eat, just that I don’t have a big family out in the US to do something on this scale.
I stayed at a hotel this time with friends locally, since we had to leave at 7:30am the next day to get my old flat mate to LAX.
