We don't carry the Thanksgiving tradition in my country, but now the more I live here, more I feel the importance of celebrating. We are greatful for our lives, and we want the kids to appreciate it too.
So I grabbed some tree branches from my tree (they fell from the hurricane), and placed them in a vase. The color was very unattractive, so I used a glitter craft paint from Martha Stewart. When it was finished, I hang all the school projects the kids made for Thanksgiving.
I'll try my best to teach my kids about this tradition, also because when they grow up to be in college, I want them to come back to spend the holiday with me.
