Thanksgiving weekend in Shanghai

Me and my baby Christmas tree in my apartment in Shanghai.  This year I placed it by the window on top of an upside down planter to make it look more prestigious.  I also placed poinsettia plants around it to make it appear more full.  At the very minimum, my dog can't chew on the branches, so I feel better about that!

Some of my students (who are also coworkers' children) enjoying their Thanksgiving dinner hosted at the lovely home of my colleague Holly.  She is the queen of crafts and yummy food.  I have a lot to learn from her!

         My coworkers from Concordia... what a fun group!  :)  Lots of laughs quoting Will Ferrell jokes!

I'm not a huge fan of Thanksgiving, given that it is a day devoted to killing and eating innocent turkeys, but there were plenty of veggie dishes to enjoy.  No tofurky this year, but the expat supermarkets came in handy, providing us with lots of comfort food; even pumpkin pie for dessert!  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, wherever you were in this beautiful world.
