Why organize a Thanksgiving dinner after moving to Luxembourg?

Motivation to finish unpacking
People often delay unpacking those last few boxes. Items remain unsorted and undecorated for weeks, even months. It can easily happen to you as well. However, if you decide to host a Thanksgiving dinner, it’ll give you an end date for unpacking. Inviting guests is the best possible motivator to sort everything and make your new home functional and beautiful. If something remains unpacked, you can always hide it from your guests.
Roll Thanksgiving and housewarming into one party
You may not have many friends or family members to invite after moving to Luxembourg from US. But invite everyone you can think of. Combine Thanksgiving dinner with a housewarming party. If you’re moving to Luxembourg for work, you’ll probably get to know a few co-workers by Thanksgiving. Invite them to dinner. Why not invite your neighbors also. It will be a great opportunity to get to know people and introduce them to the amazing holiday that is Thanksgiving.
