Juliana and I talked to our Italian partner Mary twice.

The first time, we talked about the city of Bologna, her house, her family and pets, her job, and her car. She told us about the night life in Bologna, and we talked about our families in New York and Virginia. We told her about Dickinson and what a residential college is like.

The second time we talked was right after Halloween. We talked about Halloween, and what all three of us had done that weekend. Then we talked about her school some more. Finally we talked about food. She told us what she eats for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She told us who cooks in her family and with whom she eats.

On the whole, I found the experience fairly frustrating. She rarely responded to our emails and so we ended up just trying to call her when we could. We tried calling 3 other times when we received no answer. Also, I sent her 2 very long emails (I posted them too) about the American school system, and then one about the Holiday of Thanksgiving and a recap of my favorite Thanksgiving story, to which she didn’t respond.

Durante la vacanza, Mary non mi ho fatto un’e-mail, cosi’ invece, non ho telefonato a Mary, io ho fatto un’e-mail a Mary del Giorno del Ringraziamento.

Il Giorno del Ringraziamento e’ un’importante e tradizionale festa nazionale americana. Il Giorno del Ringraziamento e’ il’ultimo giovedi nel novembre. Si e’ ricordati i pelligrini a Plymouth Rock e come i pelligrini ringraziarono per il suo primo anno nella America.

Oggi, le famiglie e le amici riunono nel Giorno del Ringraziamento. La maggiore parte di famiglie hanno un pasto festivo enorme, con il tacchino, i contorno tradizionali, e la crostata di zucca. Alcune famiglie guardono la parada di Macy’s, e alcune famiglie guardono o giocano calcio americano.

Il mio preferito racconto del Giorno del Ringraziamento e’ il film a cartoni animati di Peanuts. Charlie Brown va alla casa di sua nonna per il Giorno del Ringraziamento. Poi Marcy telefona Charlie Brown e stessa invata alla casa di Charlie Brown per il pasto festivo! Charlie Brown non sa a dicire! Poi Marcy telefona Charlie Brown e dice che Peppermint Patty, Franklin e tutti i suoi amici vengono alla casa di Charlie Brown per il pasto festivo! Charlie Brown non sa a fare! Charlie Brown non sa a cucinare! Allora, Charlie Brown, e Snoopy (il cane di Charlie Brown) e Woodstock (il uccello di Snoopy) fanno un “pasto festivo.” Cucinano popcorn, pane tostato con burro, e carmelle all frutta. Marcy si arriaba a Charlie Brown per il cattivo pasto festivo, senza un tacchino! Poi, Charlie Brown telefona sua nonna. Sua nonna invita Charlie Brown e tutti suoi amici a casa sua. Cosi, Charlie Brown e tutti suoi amici lasciano. Poi, Snoopy prende un tacchino, le verdure, le patate, e un crostata di zucca da la sua cuccia per il cane, per stesso e Woodstock!

Me amo Snoopy. Guardo tutte i film a caroni animati di Snoopy per le feste (Halloween, Giorno del Ringraziamento, Natale, Giorno del San Valentino.) Quest film e’ stato fatto nel 1973.
