It’s that time of year again people! The aroma of 3-cheese baked mac, cornbread glazed with warm honey, and most importantly, the Big Daddy of all thanksgiving meals, the turkey. I could write a whole article on why I believe ham is a stronger Thanksgiving main attraction than turkey, but that is not what this article is about. Today I bring to you what Thanksgiving is like within the walls of a Nigerian home. For context, both of my parents immigrated from a small village in Southeast, Nigeria called Alayi. This is a little insight to how the crossaction of both American culture and Nigerian traditions shape our Thanksgiving.

The Seattle Mariners had not made the MLB playoffs in 20 years. The longest active playoff drought amongst major North American sports.

But finally, after 20 painful years for Mariner fans they have been rewarded.
