In Canada Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving Day is an annual Canadian holiday, occurring on the second Monday in October, which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year. Thanksgiving has been officially celebrated as an annual holiday in Canada since November 6, 1879. So this story is about the first time I celebrated Thanksgiving since moving away from home in 2015. So this story is about the first time I celebrated Thanksgiving since moving away from home in 2015; let me tell you about it!
So, I moved over 1500km (932miles) away from home in 2015 to go to college for computer programming and I still currently live here. Since I moved here I have not celebrated Thanksgiving because I don’t have any family here and I knew 2 people who lived here. My partner at the time, their family didn’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, so that was 2 of them, and then I was single for the following year (2017) and like I said, I don’t have any family here so I had no one to celebrate with. But this year was different, for the first time since I moved here I actually celebrated Thanksgiving!
Kristina asked me to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family; I was a little hesitant at first but I agreed and ended up having a ton of fun! After I finished working they came and picked me up, so here is what we did!
The first thing we did was go apple picking at an apple orchard. This was the first time I had ever been apple picking and it was a lot of fun! You should know that I am quite tall and Kristina’s parents wanted the apples at the top of the tree so they had Kristina Sit on my shoulders and walk around with her up there so we could get apples from the top of trees. My shoulders were killing me by the end of it because she wouldn’t stop moving around and I also had to dodge falling apples from hitting me in the head because they would slip out of her hands! I am not very photogenic but we took a lot of pictures and I had a great time!
Here are some of the pictures that we took. You can also see the height difference hahaha
After we finished apple picking, we all went back to the house and had our big turkey dinner meal. There was turkey, dressing (stuffing), carrots, potatoes, etc and of course, pumpkin pie and we had a few drinks.
After we all finished eating Kristina and myself went back to her room to watch YouTube videos (our usual) but ended up just watching one video then taking a nap because of turkey coma hahahahaha
I know it’s not a ton of stuff but this was the first time I had done anything for Thanksgiving since I moved away from home so it means a lot to me. So thanks, babe! (I know she is going to read this)
K; why yes, of course, I’m going to read this! Also, for added aww-effect, what he didn’t tell you is upon wishing him a happy Thanksgiving, I also said how I was very thankful to have gotten him this year! (And no, the apple falling from my hands were NOT on purpose 🙈).
Ps; what do you mean not photogenic?? Idk about yall, but I think he looks pretty good in those, doesn’t him? 😏 okay, mom’s photography may have helped, but nonetheless there was more good than bad shots — which I was looking like a drunk on one of those 😂 I love you xx
My questions today is, how do you and your family celebrate Thanksgiving? Thank you for reading my post, and as always, have a great day!
