Calling Thanksgiving Christmas is Just the Israeli Way
It had been six months since I made the big move from the States to my husband’s native home, Israel, and as that first November abroad unfolded, I began longing for parades, turkey, pie and holiday sales.
Reflecting upon Thanksgiving had made this American gal long for friends and family back in Detroit, and since my in-laws finally lived within proximity to actually invite over for a meal, I thought they might enjoy a traditional American holiday dinner.
Thanksgiving, I figured, contained all the requisite elements for an Israeli celebration: endless amounts of food, plenty of family and, of course, tradition — sans the Israeli fare.
