Since living in America I’ve been asked many questions about Australia from those about animals – “do kangaroos hop in the streets of the Sydney” … to the funniest – “do you use the same alphabet?” to probably the stupidest “do you have the same moon?”
But after 10 years it still surprises me that every year someone asks me “what do you do for Thanksgiving in Australia”.
Aussies like a big celebration but Thanksgiving is not a part of Australia’s history.
But, that’s not to say that an Australian living in America does not enjoy the feast and spare a few moments to be thankful for what she has.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate it.
