Thanksgiving still feels like a new holiday to the Princess. In the old realm, Sir Rianus would cook up a turkey dinner and it was fun - but as there was no collective celebration in the culture, it didn't seem like a particularly special occasion. In the new realm, this is not the case. 'Holidays' seem to be a big deal and must be followed. Unfortunately, it is difficult to create a tradition within the new realm when splitting time between two splintered halves of a family across the years. Coming so late in the year, the Princess finds it difficult to identify Thanksgiving as a harvest meal. The pilgrims arriving in a new country - yeah she understands that part! And the giving thanks - that is becoming an essential habit of her daily life. She is happy to join together with others to praise God for his goodness.
