Thanksgiving is not celebrated here in France. Nor, I think, anywhere in Europe.
When I was an exchange student at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, I celebrated two Thanksgivings in a row with American friends and still remember the meals and the convivial atmosphere.
As you can’t have your turkey and eat it, no turkey for me today unfortunately. But, the one I had with friends Bob and Norma was a great moment of friendship, –not to mention how happy my tastebuds felt.
So today is just an ordinary day in Paris having lunch with Julie, like almost every Thursday, something I really enjoy doing.
To all my friends, old and new, I wish a Happy Thanksgiving.
