What Thanksgiving Looks Like
Since I live in the Midwest, Thanksgiving weather is always cold, usually damp, and sometimes snowy. The brilliant colors of fall are over; the landscape is a combination of grays and browns.
As my family gathers together at Thanksgiving, we light a fire in the fireplace. We eat Chex Mix, turkey, and green bean casserole. But the thing we enjoy the most during our Thanksgiving celebration is playing cards. This is what Thanksgiving looks like in my neck of the woods:
Groups of four, partnered up. Players arranging their hand, bidding, cursing, laughing. My memories of Thanksgiving are of my family playing 500. I’m hoping I get to play a loud, fun game of 500 this Thanksgiving.
What does your Thanksgiving look like? If you don’t live in the U.S., do you have a holiday which is similar to our day of giving thanks?
