Tacosgiving 2018

The holiday season is in full swing, with Thanksgiving just gone and streets lighting up in anticipation of Christmas. On Sunday, Eirik and I invited our family over for a Thanksgiving dinner. We opted to skip the turkey this year in favour of tacos to add a little touch of Norwegian tradition to our American celebration. Here are some pictures from our Tacosgiving

Friendsgiving

Friendsgiving dinner

This year, Eirik and I hosted a Friendsgiving dinner with traditional Thanksgiving food: a whole turkey with cranberry sauce, gravy, and mashed potatoes. It was our first time cooking a turkey, so we were quite relieved that nothing went wrong during the process. Researching and preparing ahead of time helped tremendously!

Preparing the turkey

Thanksgiving and Black Friday really capture the greatness of laissez-faire capitalism because together they uphold the role of the mind in your life. On Thanksgiving, you celebrate your success (as the pilgrims once feasted after a bountiful harvest) and on Black Friday, you invest in your future (by buying things you consider of high value at low prices). Without productive use of the mind, there would be neither of these and thus no cause for celebration. Even though it is an American holiday, you can absolutely celebrate Thanksgiving around the world 😉
