Thanksgiving in Australia

Happy Thanksgiving! There is nothing like it here in Oz and people regard it as a bit bizarre. Typical conversation: “So, what do you do for Thanksgiving?” “Well, eat. And talk.” “Are there presents?” “Nope… just food…” “Are there songs or a ceremony or something?” “Um, well I guess you can say grace or something before you eat…” I know that the best part of Thanksgiving is getting family and friends together, and that it is in that way a great holiday, one of my favorites. But I also realize that here it seems that friends and families already often get together for dinner and families live close enough to often do that, so a special occasion to get together is not so important here. Also, it’s really hot baking that turkey in the Aussie summer. :)
