I wish I had a euro for everytime someone from home asked me if the French celebrate Thanksgiving..most defiantely not!  Thanksgiving is when it hit me how homesick I was and going to miss preparations for the holidays.  We planned on having a thanksgiving dinner with our American, Costa Rican, Dutch, and French friends but we could not even find a turkey to cook over here!  We ended up putting together a make-shift meal of roasted chicken, potatoes, green beans, carrots, and of course wine.  It ended up being a great night though and us Americans were able to bring some holiday culture to France!
