The 4-day Thanksgiving weekend is a big deal in the US. It's pretty much four days with tons of shopping, NFL football games and of course, a huge stuffed turkey. Being in France for a year for my MBA obviously meant that I was going to miss out on all these wonderful traditions. Yet, somehow I convinced a good portion of my MBA class to have a traditional American Thanksgiving with me! 15 people, a 6 kilo turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, carrots and rolls, plus a ton of desserts! Everyone chipped in and brought a side dish and helped contribute to making our Global MBA unofficial "American" Thanksgiving great! It was a wonderful night with great friends, food and fun!
