The Thanksgiving holiday, is all about friends, family, and food. No matter where they spent it, Oesians seemed to stick with the three F’s: Friends, Family and Food. I thought it would be interesting to check in with a couple of our fellow students to get the particulars on how they spent their day. Oesians went all over the country, and some to different continents. Most went with the traditional homemade turkey and stuffing for their meal. Here is what some people did:
Jennifer L. ‘18 got up early, and started preparing for the big meal at eight in the morning. Her family cooked the classic Thanksgiving meal consisting of turkey, beet salad, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. But they had a lot of cooking to do; Jennifer had three aunts, five uncles, sixteen cousins and her grandparents over for the big meal. After they were done feasting the kids played ping pong and watched Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
Anna S. ‘18 traveled down to California with her family to go to her mom’s cousins house with her cousins, aunts and uncles. They ate a classic Thanksgiving meal, but Anna was disappointed to find there was no kids table this year. They then watched the 49ers vs. Seahawks football game. Because the 49ers got blown out, the Californians in Anna’s family were very upset. Anna would like to also say she gives thanks to her family and friends.
Olivia P. ‘17 went to Texas with her family to celebrate Thanksgiving with a lot of her great uncles and aunts. They too, had a classic Thanksgiving feast and then watched some football games on a small TV in a living room.
Harrison N. ‘16 and Elliott N. ‘18 went to their grandparents house, in Portland, Oregon, on Thanksgiving with nine other family members. Like everybody else mentioned, they ate a classic Thanksgiving meal. Elliott and his brother along with a few others, watched the Seattle vs. San Francisco football game. Elliott was pleased to see Seattle come out with the win, especially after their big win against Arizona the week before. After that game was over, they quickly turned their attention to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
