My Thanksgivings in Ireland

I’m from New York & have lived in Ireland for the past ten years. My husband is Irish & all three of our kiddies were born here. Thanksgiving is one time of year where I feel a little homesick.


My Thanksgivings in Ireland are different from those I celebrated in the U.S. Thanksgiving is an American holiday & it’s not celebrated in Ireland. So, for everyone else in the country, it’s just a regular Thursday. There are no Thanksgiving decorations in the shops. No Thanksgiving day parade or celebrations; no snow. Everyone goes to work or school.
