Getting together

Family eating together

On Thanksgiving, people get together to eat and give thanks for food, friends and family. Many people travel great distances to see their loved ones. For the past few years, people weren't able to travel as easily due to Covid restrictions. This year, 55 million people are expected to travel this week in the US.

Birthdays and holidays;
We usually go by car, there are few relatives who live far away and it's not that far;
Mostly it's barbecue;
We always do karaoke, it's so much fun! And also, of course, the gossip haha

Hi nunesspaulaa,

I like barbecues as well! It's fun to cook together and chat :D
