The first year I came into the United States I realized how much I loved Thanksgiving. This great holiday is only common in the US and not really in Italy. However, as soon as I came here I started loving it. Not only for the great food that is present on the table, but also for the way that people love to get together and give thanks for all they get and are. I think it is one of the best holidays just because of the reason that is behind it.
I still remember, my first fall semester three years ago when I was invited to the Friends-giving of my teammates and we all got to cook something to bring and hang out together. It was awesome and still this year we are going to be able to do it next Sunday.
However, the thing that I most love is going to my friend Erin’s house for Thanksgiving. I’ve gone there since my first semester and I became a part of the family. I could not have asked for anything better and all the time they welcome me as I have been always a member. It is great and I will always have great memories of it.
In the end, of course the part that I love the most is the food. The delicious turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes and even the rolls are what make it my favorite holiday and even when I will go home for good I will try to bring it back with me.
