Since I was brought up in two different countries, in the USA and in Germany, I live by both traditions ’cause that’s who I am, who I’ve become. So, for me Thanksgiving is a “holy” holiday. I have to admit that it’s a bit tricky when living in Germany, which is why I always have to take a few days off over the American Thanksgiving holidays, but for me, traditions are important.
I already live in my little Disney bubble and my heart is filled with warmth, love, romance and happiness. I cannot help it – it’s this time of the year… :-) Tomorrow I am hosting my first Thanksgiving dinner in Germany and invited my very close friends from Munich. As you can see in the little gallery below I already prepared most of the food – and of course already tasted most of it :D – decorated my place and prepared some gifts for my guests. It’s just my way of saying thank you for so many things and being grateful to have met such wonderful friends in Munich, to have a loving family and much more.
On Thanksgiving morning I usually have breakfast in bed and watch the movie Miracle on 34th Street. Then I’ll take a hot bath and listen to cheesy, romantic Christmas songs till I am all relaxed and cannot stop smiling. Afterwards I finish up the last preparations for dinner and watch another romantic movie – either Elf or Three wishes for Cinderella. And then I get together with my beloved ones, enjoy some great food and cherish the little things in life.
This year we will also send a little message in a bottle on its way with our personal “thank you notes”. So, after dinner we will have a nice stroll along the river side and will then send our message in a bottle on its way. Yeah, I know, during the holiday season I am just hopelessly romantic. :-)
