Thanksgiving, which occurs on the fourth Thursday in November, is based on the colonial Pilgrims harvest meal in 1621. The holiday continues to be a day for Americans to gather for a day of feasting, football and family.
For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. The holiday celebrates when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “First Thanksgiving.
Unlike some holidays such as New Year's Eve and Fourth of July when people traditionally go out somewhere to celebrate, Thanksgiving is most commonly celebrated at home with family and friends.
We wish all of our American customers, colleagues and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving 2018.

I recently spent some time site seeing in the town of Toledo in
Castile-La Mancha, Spain. Situated to the south of Madrid, the
walled city is set on a hill above a river, which gives spectacular views
over the surrounding countryside.
My last Blog described going to a Spanish Ski slope.
Whilst the weather in Southern Spain was cold and wet in October and November (the rain is sorely needed) it has been sunny and dry for about 6 weeks or so. Down on the coast it can still be T shirts and shorts.
