Es Gibt Kein Thanksgiving

It's almost Thanksgiving, but you wouldn't know it in Berlin. Aside from a banner at the local American Church announcing a Thanksgiving dinner (an experience I'm willing to miss), there's no indication that the USA is about to celebrate one of its most important holiday's.

There are no turkeys at the supermarket, no window displays featuring cute Pilgrims, no pumpkin pies on crowded shelves, and no after Thanksgiving Day sales. It feels odd, but then again, I've never been fond of a holiday dedicated to watching TV and over indulgence.
