Celebrating Thanksgiving in Tibetan style

Interview with Tenzin Palkyi, MN, Tenzin Dasel, Madison, and Dechen Tsering, CA. Palkyi said she finds Thanksgiving day a great opportunity to connect with family and friends. However, for dinner, her family enjoys Tibetan food instead. Dasel too observes Thanksgiving, and this year, him and his fiance are adding a small stuffed turkey for dinner. Tsering lauds its significance as a day of family gathering and to reflect on kindness of others.
