Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Or, as they say in Spanish, feliz Día de acción de gracias! It's a time for feasts, football and family. Whether you're enjoying a typical American turkey day with all the trimmings or a 'Rican version of the holiday with pavochón and arroz con gandules, I hope this day finds you well and surrounded by your loved ones.
Any family gathering that involves food will win the hearts of Puerto Ricans, so Thanksgiving never stood a chance. It's a holiday tailor-made for Puerto Rico.
And of course, after the dinner and the game is over, you can turn your attention to the next big event in the holiday: Black Friday! And the best place to go to find a bunch of deals in one setting is Plaza las Américas. The largest mall in the Caribbean has got to have a few terrific bargains on offer tomorow.
Happy turkey (pavo) day!!
