Thanksgiving in China

by Lori Ann


Saruskabeth’s Thanksgiving post inspired me to share a little from our own week:


Thursday wasn’t a holiday here but we spent the week in the Big City, so that day we introduced Tigger to some American activities: lunch at KFC (China’s most popular fast food chain!) and the shopping carts at Wal-mart (which are much cooler here: they are four-wheel drive).


Saturday, American friends invited us and a group of their Chinese friends over for a traditional turkey dinner much like the one we hosted last year. Tigger ceased being a vegetarian as she tried her first meat, and we shared the tradition of giving thanks before the meal.


How did your family celebrate Thanksgiving?

  1. I’m Canadian, so we celebrated Thanksgiving in October. It’s on a Monday, and it typically falls on the same day as Columbus Day in the US. 🙂

    • Fun! A Canadian family runs a Western restaurant in the same province as me and they always offer two Thanksgiving dinners a year: one for Canadian Thanksgiving, one for U.S.
