Although Thanksgiving in November is traditionally an American holiday, Mogau Seshoene, aka The Lazy Makoti, demonstrated the value of giving thanks and showing appreciation for those around us – regardless of where we live.

Thanksgiving is all about sharing good food with friends and family, and reflecting on all that we’re thankful for. The Lazy Makoti did just that in a beautiful and heartfelt celebration in gratitude to her friends and family.

With delicious food and gorgeous decorations, this South African Thanksgiving celebration is one to remember.
