Since we are still in the Thanksgiving holiday mood, then I will share my story on what I did during Thanksgiving break and the days prior to the holiday. I will not talk much about the Black Friday event (I don’t really care much about this one since its overrated anyway) so I hope you enjoy my post.
2 days before Thanksgiving, I was not really in the mood on doing anything but I had to do some quick grocery shopping so I went to Whole Foods. While I was in the subway station waiting for my train, I caught a quick glimpse of Manhattan’s sunset view and it was just oh-so pretty. I could not help it but take couple of pictures with my phone. I just love sunset pictures.
A day before Thanksgiving, my stomach was already full with the foods and pies I got from Whole Foods. Then I had a sudden idea of going to Manhattan and looked for boots at DSW. I looked outside and it snowed then rained then snowed again. Definitely a nasty weather for that day. However, I braved myself on going outside and I saw snow on the ground. Even though it was not as bad as Buffalo (yeah an 80 inches snow would definitely make New York City chaos) but I just smiled and snap one picture of it. Hey, it’s better than nothing!
Thanksgiving Day arrived and I went out of town for Thanksgiving dinner with my bf and his family. We traveled about 50 miles upstate to a town called Mahopac in Putnam County. Our car got caught in a nasty traffic earlier from Manhattan to the Bronx but as soon as we reached Westchester County, the scenery suddenly changed. Lots of snows on the side of the road and it felt as if we were actually having a White Christmas holiday. I could not help but take lots of pictures and started to think to myself “dang, I should consider moving here.” Hours earlier, while I was watching the Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade, it snowed for a while and the last time it snows during Thanksgiving was in 1938.
Oh yeah, this year we have a White Thanksgiving!
Back to Thanksgiving, I had a lot of fun – eating and munching plenty of foods and desserts and food coma did not stop there. The next day, we cooked another turkey (smaller one though) and munch another cakes and pie (not trying to advertise here but Zabar’s has the best pecan pie). I had a lot of leftovers and to this day, I still haven’t manage to finish them all.
Oh well, Thanksgiving only come once a year and what’s better thing to do than to celebrate it with your loved ones while eating, conversing, and sharing stories without having to worry about Black Friday?! Hey, there’s always Cyber Monday 😉
Ps: would love to know your Thanksgiving story 🙂
