Christian Pulisic has more to be thankful for this Thursday than just his goal in Spain last night, for today, by the player’s own admission, is one of his favourite days of the year.
At Chelsea Football Club, they have never previously had an American in the team during the last week in November so the opportunity must not be wasted
to ask Pulisic about Thanksgiving Day back in his homeland.
For many Blues fans who are not from or do not live in the United States, there is plenty to learn about Thanksgiving, and about how Pulisic himself celebrates it.
He fills us in here with details
on how Americans fill up on the fourth Thursday in
this month every year, and about what the
celebration is all about…
‘Thanksgiving is so special,’ he begins. ‘It is one of my favourite holidays back in the States. It is religious, the main thing is just giving thanks for everything that you have and for the people around you.
‘You share it with your family and I remember we would have 20 or 30 family members – cousins, uncles, grandparents, everyone – along a huge table and we would make a huge feast. All day and the day before we would be cooking and getting everything ready and it smells delicious.
