Tomorrow, here in the U.S., many folks will celebrate Thanksgiving with a lot of great food and surrounded by family and/or friends.
There are those who do not have the closeness of family and friends because of distance, health or other reasons. That was the case when we lived in VA, away from family. So, we invited folks we knew, who were in a similar situation, to join us for dinner. We always had the best times. In recent years, such a gathering has been called Friendsgiving, combining "friend" and "Thanksgiving" to refer to a meal eaten with friends — on or around Thanksgiving. It's still a celebration. The only difference is the people you celebrate with, regardless of whether or not you're related. After all, it's being together that's the most important part of the holiday.
This 🦃 holiday, we're neither celebrating at home nor visiting family, but will celebrate with friends and others we haven't (yet) met here in NH. Yes, we're on the road again, staying in a hotel in the White Mountains here. We expect to visit with family members during the🎄holiday.
Enjoy your celebration and if you're planning to holiday shop, we hope that you find things not only on your list, but on sale too ! (Blog posts will be on a break for the holiday too.)
Our Best Wishes to All for a very Happy Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving celebrated with all those special folks in your lives and perhaps a few new ones too.
Thanks to everyone who has read and commented (or not) on blog posts this year which is fast drawing to a close. To us, fellow bloggers are "friends" we haven't met and, even if we never meet in person, friendships also can be virtual, like everything now.
Thankful for Everyone
Beatrice & Grenville
