All of a sudden the Thanksgiving/Christmas excitement hit me yesterday. For some reason it came a little late this year. I’d still love for it to be warm outside, but I’m starting to remember why the chill can be nice too. A lot of good, cozy things happen when it’s cold, like hot apple cider and bundling up in scarves and foggy breath. To celebrate last night I bought my first pomegranate of the season – the first time I ever had one was when I stayed at Kristen Thornbrue’s house for Thanksgiving freshman year. Now it’s always connected in my mind to holiday cheer. The next year when I was in London for the holiday I treated myself to a grab-and-go package of pomegranate from Tesco and was perfectly content.
(yes, I did make my sister hold my pomegranate outside so I could take a picture)
Also, happy veterans day. I really wish everyone here wore poppies like they did in London and elsewhere to celebrate remembrance day. I feel like it gets a little forgotten here sometimes, and it really deserves a lot of attention.
