A Celebration of an American Tradition

On Friday, December 11th, the Harrington's had the great pleasure of welcoming over 20 guests into their home to celebrate a Merry Happy ThanksChristmasing. Having been privileged to meet various International students this year through the University of Wyoming's Friendship Family Program, CouchSurfing, the process of Adoption and by going to church, the Harrington's were lead to believe that hosting an International/American Celebration of sorts would add the perfect touch to their holiday season. With the help of beloved friends from Emmaus Road the Harrington's were able to bring together representatives from: North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia to celebrate the Holidays in true traditon.

A turkey was dressed, stuffing prepared, sweet potatoes baked, and pumpkin pie ready for whipped cream. A traditional Blakan's dish of Mousaka and a delisious Nepalese dish also made their appearance on the Thanksgiving table. Guests enjoyed eating together, chatting, a round of Apples to Apples and of course some live music. The evening was beyond enjoyable and left all knowing just how much they truly had to be thankful for.
