How to Celebrate Thanksgiving Abroad
Celebrate traditions that serve you
Carefully consider the traditions that you and your family normally practice at home. Chances are, you enjoy some more than others. Consider each part of the tradition – do they all make you feel connected to your culture and your personal identity?
Make sure to preserve the aspects and rituals of the tradition that feel most important and meaningful to you. These are the parts that you would really miss if you skip them. For me, I love sharing a meal with loved ones, and that part of Thanksgiving (cooking, sharing, and eating) is really important to me, so I try to emphasize that aspect.
