Thursday, 25 November, A Traditional Thanksgiving Celebration
On November 25, more than 100 students and teachers, as well as the international community of UCU came together and joined in the traditional Thanksgiving celebration, organized by the English department of UCU.
Before the dinner started, Christi Anne Hofland gave a warm welcome and introduced us into the tradition of Thanksgiving by giving a presentation about its history and showing an entertaining cartoon.
Meanwhile, as more and more people were arriving, the spare spots on our large Thanksgiving table disappeared. It looked magnificent: turkey and cranberry sauce, pies and salads, wine and juice. Everybody had contributed!
We spend a wonderful evening enjoying a delicious dinner, chatting in English as well as in Ukrainian and, most of all, giving thanks.
