As we’ve been living in a country that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving for the past seven years, it felt quite strange to be here for it now. Canned pumpkin in all the shops (you’d never guess the ridiculousness I went through to find it some years in London), a trip to a pumpkin patch, recipes for the best turkey in all the papers, and a downtown neighbourhood nearly as quiet as Spitalfields used to be at Christmas.

This is my favourite time of year, now until Christmas. I did miss the turkey, and the reflection, of Thanksgiving when we lived in England. It was a bit lonely celebrating it on our own. This year we’ve had a lovely weekend filled with family. And pumpkins, don’t forget the pumpkins.
