Happy Thanksgiving 2021

Here is my annual Thanksgiving blog, which I've published before. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and for the last seven years I have published this French Thanksgiving vocabulary list, courtesy of my former New York French teacher, Luc Georges.

Since Thanksgiving is not an official holiday in France, many ex-pats postpone their Thanksgiving dinner for Friday or Saturday, but some are traditionalists and make it on Thursday. I will be going to a friend's house Saturday night. 

Happy Thanksgiving and be thankful for what you have and for your family and friends. What are you thankful for this year?

Please join me for a very special Facebook Live tour with Atout France of the festive Tuileries Christmas Market on Wednesday, December [email protected] East Coast Time, 9am Mid-West Time, 7am West Coast Time & 4pm Paris Time. 

As is the custom each year, Paris is decked out in lights as the festive season approaches. Streets sparkle, major department stores come alive and the magic of Christmas weaves its spell!  We will visit the best and most popular Christmas market in the iconic Tuileries Gardens and experience the dazzling lights and dozens of food and gift chalets. We will also see the holiday lights, decorations, and shop windows on the rue de Rivoli, rue Saint Honore, and the festive holiday displays on the Place Vendome.
