I remember our first Thanksgiving overseas. We celebrated alone, had pumpkin vine soup, tofu, and something called “qingcai.” In America we call them weeds! It was memorable :)
Celebrating holidays overseas is tricky. Sometimes we celebrate alone, sometimes we have people into our home, and sometimes we go to another foreign family’s home. It all depends on where we happen to be living!
Regardless of how we celebrate, one of the things I’ve become more intentional about when having people in my home is conversation.
It sounds basic, but in our high-tech, transient world, having rich, meaningful conversations that edify is not a guarantee. I created these conversation cards to ensure folks leave my home feeling nourished in both body and spirit. If you are hosting this year (and even if you aren’t!), feel free to use these Thanksgiving conversation starters to make your Thanksgiving un-forgettable for your guests.
