Celebrating Thanksgiving

We’ve always celebrated Thanksgiving in the Adam Smith Institute, even though it’s an American festival.  The directors cook a meal for the young staff members.  It’s not quite up to legendary US standards, but it does feature New England clam chowder, roast turkey and sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie to follow.

After the meal we always watch Mickey’s Christmas Carol, and our newest employee gets to decorate the Christmas tree.  In the UK the end of Hallowe’en means the start of the Christmas season, but we follow the US custom of having Thanksgiving as a useful break in between.  We’ve done it this way for decades…
