When Tiffany described her struggles and misadventures to recreate a traditional Thanksgiving meal in her adopted country (listen to that mini-episodehere if you haven’t already), Katy had lots of questions.
In this episode, they dissect what it is that makes it so hard, practically and emotionally, to recreate traditional holidays in a country that doesn’t celebrate them. On a deeper level, they discuss the stark possibility that Tiffany will never again celebrate Thanksgiving with her family of origin, something she has never before admitted to herself.
