Thanksgiving is an occasion for all families to get together and have fun. I made the flower napkin stands with my American grandma. Later on Thanksgiving Day, we had a splendid meal and played the American card games with my host family. What surprised me was that they invited me to play Chinese mahjong. Lol. It was great fun spending time with them and talking a lot about cultural differences. I can totally feel American’s hospitality and humor.
Before the Thanksgiving Day, we had the “Thank you” activity for students. Every student watched a video about how Thanksgiving came from and discussed what we usually do on this big festival day all together. Then they got ten pieces of leaves shape paper, and wrote down the names who and what they want to thank. They can be very creative on what they design. It can be a leaves crown，christmas tree ornament or some gift cards to their families and friends.
