    I will be heading to my Aunts home tomorrow. She has a fresh free range bird and will be making all the trimmings.

    ^ Is there no 'American' Club in Bangkok?

    A place for kindred spirits to gather.

    Are you taking your Mum up to your Aunts place?

    Sister / Sister-in-Law catch up and all that.

    Which day is more revered/celebrated ... Thanksgiving or Independence Day?

    My mother has Alzheimers we used to drive down to her house for Thanksgiving but a could of years ago it became clear she could no longer manage it. So know my Aunt has taken over. My step father will bring my mother and the dachshunds up for the holiday.

    No easy answer to that. From the perspective of reuniting families Thanksgiving takes the cake. Independence day in the US sadly has been a brainless exercise for years. Many go camping or to vacation spots and indulge in lots of drinking and blowing off of fireworks. Very little thought goes into the meaning of the actual holiday.

    No sisters but a brother and a step brother will be there. So yes catching up will happen as well as lots of eating.

    The holiday I miss the most. To me it is the most family oriented of all our holidays. No kids here and a wife and helper who are more interested in Loy Kratong which also falls today so no chicken or turkey dinner.. In fact dine alone. Not into the crowds on the river.

    Like most purely American events, it's decades in my rearview mirror. Wife and kids simply aren't interested, and there's no real reason why they should be. Too bad, but simply is pretty meaningless out here.

    All those Yank made up hols are just a means to get you pumping money back into the economy.
    Thanksgiving, Mothers day, Fathers Day, Valentines day......all that shit stems from the states

    I'd never even heard of Black Friday until a few years ago.

    ...no idea...I don't tend to hang out with fellow passport holders anyway...SD, having spent years in the States, is familiar with the holiday but more as a shopping event...so, I celebrate quietly with my memories of family, fall and outrageous over-indulgence...

    Thanksgiving is the only holiday I ever enjoyed after becoming 18 or so. The rest are worthless marketing nonsense...

    Happy Thanksgiving to all other 'mercans on TD. No Turkey here but Wife is going to do up a Ham and some taters and veggies. I will not be up at 4am watching NFL. I will watch later having a Ham sammy.
