Happy Thanksgiving! It’s a time for peace, cheer, and gratefulness. I always look forward to the end of the year, not only because of Christmas, but especially because of Thanksgiving. It’s an admirable holiday– a day to give thanks, express gratitude, and count our blessings– and that’s a feeling that anyone, even non-Americans, can certainly appreciate.
A Year in Viet Nam. I’ve now been in Viet Nam for a little over a year. And although most of our development team is based here, Greengar Studios is an American company. So, when we were considering how to celebrate our first Thanksgiving in our new offices, we decided to make it big. Not in terms of the number of people, but in terms of the amount of food. And we succeeded.
Not only did we prepare ample quantities of food, but we also expressed our creativity in multiple ways. We had a large, artistic “Give Thanks” poster with everyone’s hand-tracings and written expressions of thanks. And a few of the guests joined me in assembling this deliciously juicy fruit turkey:
Does it look like a turkey? Because it certainly is one!
Thanks to Tyler, Silvercast, and others for helping to put him together. Later that evening, I ate half that watermelon body myself.
Our star Customer Service rep, Angie Worldtrekker, loves pies, especially Apple pies:
Mmm.. I had a slice after this photo was taken.
Needless to say, we had a terrific Thanksgiving feast. And way, way too much food.
