A Congolese Thanksgiving Feast

Happy Thanksgiving Day! That's for my fellow Americans.


In Congo, I found that family birthday celebrations come the closest to our Thanksgiving feast. Congolese go all out to celebrate their older family member's birthday. Those birthdays are precious. Older Congolese have suffered through diseases, suffering, and colonialism.


There are plenty of foods to eat. Chicken, fish and goat replaces the turkey as the center piece meat.


It's not our Thanksgiving Feast but it's a Congolese Thanksgiving Feast. Yum, yum, I am ready to eat!
