The Californiangoans Thanksgiving 2009 was held at George and Olivier's Place on 26th Nov. Thanksgiving which is traditionally a American Family celebration began when the pilgrims who first came to America shared their first harvest with their neighbouring Indians to give thanks to them for teaching them how survive the dreaded winter.Our Thanksgiving celebration was a opportunity for all of us to take a break from our hectic life and to get together with our friends and family and enjoy some home cooked Goan food.
