Coming to my thanks giving day experience in US for the first time.......
I was lucky enough to be a part of traditional Thanks Giving Day party hosted by one of my american team mates. Invited me along with fellow team mate & family ( from Kerala, India), another team mate ( From Hyderabad, India ) and a Couple from Ireland.
It was a very good expereince to be a part of that party as there were people from different countries, different cultures and different attitudes. We discussed lot of topics like traffic, food, relations, marriages...what not..... Believe me...I knew so many interesting things from other countries as well.
I gave an idol of famous Indian God ( Lord Venkateswara ) as a gift to that family which made them feel happy.
I was the only vegetarian in the party. They made vegetarian dishes for me. After having good lunch, we went to a walking trail near by their house. Anyways, a day has to end somehow, so came back with good memories.
The next day was a bit funny. As you know, all US shops will have huge discount sales on the day next to thanks giving, which is popularly called as Black Friday. I went to Best Buy ( famous electronics shop ) in the morning 1 AM just to try for a laptop deal. Oh my god, the queue started the previous night at 9 PM itself for the dicsount products. But it was a good experience to see such crowd.
Finally belated Thanks Giving Day wishes for you all and hope you also had a good day.....
