My first Thanksgiving :)
Thanksgiving is celebrated the second Monday of October in Canada, as opposed to the States where it is at the end of November. The 12th of October was a Monday and therefore we had a long weekend and used this opportunity to visit two of my host parent´s children. Although it is only October everybody is already in "Halloween fever". The whole city of Kentville was decorated with pumpkin people - it was a huge contest and everybody had the opportunity to participate. We had a lot of fun posing with pumpkin simpsons, pumpkin astronauts and pumpkin pirates.
I´ve never seen such an awesome thing in Europe. As soon as you´re older than ten you just don´t care about Halloween anymore. I really think you North Americans are better in celebrating!
On Sunday we went apple picking which was actually way more fun that I expected it to be. There are different types of apples and my host sister and me were really sick at our stomach after because we tried so many. They were delicious and the feeling to eat them directly after picking them makes them even more delicious. We also went to buy pumpkins for Halloween, more than one month before! HALLOWEEN - HERE WE COME :D
In the evening we had our Thanksgiving dinner. I´d love to say I tried turkey and it was delicious but actually I´m a vegetarian so my Thanksgiving food wasn´t very typical. I had squash, pumpkin and apple pie, though! Also it was a nice evening with the family.
