For many people in the U.S., Thanksgiving is one of the most important family holidays of the year. Because Thanksgiving is on Thursday, it’s common for employees to have Friday off from work, giving four days for travel and family reunion.
Beth has some exciting plans for this year’s Thanksgiving celebration. Listen in to her conversation with Miguel to hear what she’s going to do.

Miguel:  Hey Beth, what are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Beth:  I’m going to a friend’s house, and I’m really excited because last year the same friend made Thanksgiving dinner and brought it over to my house.

Miguel:  So is this person an especially good cook or something?

Beth:  He is amazing. He just goes all out for Thanksgiving, and it was so yummy last year. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving this year.

Miguel:  Does he make something special, or is it just the typical turkey and mashed potatoes?

Beth:  It’s definitely the traditional Thanksgiving meal, but everything is homemade, even bread and pies and, uh, everything. It’s… He just goes crazy.

Miguel:  That sounds really good. So, what’s your favorite kind of pie? Do you like pumpkin pie or pecan pie or some other kind?

Beth:  Definitely the pecan pie with vanilla ice cream.

Miguel:  That sounds good.

All this talk about food is making me hungry! I love Thanksgiving, because the food is always so good. I can’t wait to go home so I can stuff myself with turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, gravy, cranberry sauce and lots of tasty desserts.
One of the other benefits of Thanksgiving is leftovers. There’s nothing better than a big turkey sandwich for lunch the day after Thanksgiving.
Happy Holidays!
