How to Celebrate Thanksgiving Abroad
Stick within your budget
Regardless of what you plan, be sure to stick within your budget. It’s not hard! Here are a few ideas.
If you’re tight on cash, make the dinner a potluck, and invite all your friends to bring a dish to share. You can also save money by going alcohol-free, and by using all local ingredients instead of imported “home style” ones.
If you have more to spend, Thanksgiving can be a great time to splurge a little bit, by buying homey luxuries to really enjoy the holidays and share an “authentic” version with your friends. Pumpkin puree will be a definite luxury in many regions, and may require you to purchase it online in advance.
