At first, I thought it would be sad to be away from home for Thanksgiving and the build up to Christmas because of being so far away from home and because Thanksgiving generally isn’t celebrated in Denmark. However, my Danish visiting family helped me make (or I helped them make) a very traditional Thanksgiving dinner so it was not so sad to be away from home. Also, there is so much Christmas spirit here in Denmark now, it is hard not to enjoy it even if I’m not with my family yet. But at least it’s late enough in the semester that everyone has friends and Danish ‘families’ to spend time with.
