Thanksgiving in England
It all felt a bit off though... After all, we were giving thanks that America's ancestors disliked Britain so much that they had to leave. And yet here we were, interested in Britain enough that we had to come - and stay an entire a semester! It definitely put the Holiday in a new context.
But speaking of doing things to make the day seem special - they lite the Great Hall fireplace for the first time this year! It was very nice, and thankfully warm! It helped set the mood.
And for a little taste of home, I made sure (with another Wisconsinite) to find the Packer Game on TV! That's right, we watched the Packers hand it to the Lions in Real-Time.
