Day 28 – A Tradition I’m Thankful For
So when I moved to Canada, I no longer had my traditional, end-of-November Thanksgiving Day with my family. Canadian Thanksgiving is around mid-October, and it’s never quite the same for me. I’m used to watching the Macy’s Parade while smelling the turkey in the oven with my family around me. It’s always a bit of a lonely feeling.
Swiss Chalet has something called a Festive Special. It has their famous quarter chicken, plus stuffing, cranberry sauce, a bun, a side of your choice, and a box of Lindor truffles. It’s a really popular meal at this time of year, and that first year in Canada we ordered it to sort of simulate an American Thanksgiving.
This year felt unhappy, bitter. I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with this challenge and having trouble truly being grateful, so this has been quite a challenge for me. My best friends and I ordered the Festive Special and really enjoyed it, so at least the tradition is being kept, and for that I’m definitely thankful!
Love and light,
