Thanksgiving on a small Norwegian island

Considering we live in Norway, and my Norwegian family doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving (+ they live 6 hours away), we usually don’t make a very big deal out of it. This time of year, my dad is usually on his boat. Usually, it’s just me, my mom and my two siblings. So making a huge turkey and a major feast is pretty much a waste.

Thankfully though, we sometimes still do a little something for us…



We set the table…


We create a nice and pleasant atmosphere…


My mom worked her magic in the kitchen….



While we watched the Macy’s Day Parade. And just after good ol’ Santa came and made it official, CHRISTMAS SEASON IS HERE, dinner was ready and we sat down to enjoy a wonderful meal…



You know, I’m pretty thankful for you guys. Those of you who come by my blog, read it, leave comments.. Honestly it truly makes my day! Despite that my blog is first of all for me, I’m not sure I’d keep going as long and often as I have if you guys didn’t stick around. It means alot to me – thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. You are very sweet and I come around always with pleasure :)

  2. I don't usually comment on blogs, but I read and follow yours :) Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Mom worked her magic in the kitchen....I loved that Beara....I´m thankful for you, your sister, and your brother. I´m thankful we have each other and I need to be better about keeping up with our American traditions...I guess being an expat and away from the hype I´ve gotten lazy and it´s not fair for you´re as much Americans as you are Norwegians....I promise I´ll get better....even though you will soon be leaving me....WAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Love you Beara min....
