In 1952, Art Buchwald wrote a column for the International Herald Tribune to explain Thanksgiving to the French. It has become a classic and appears every year at about this time.

This reminds me of the "letter" that Jack Parr wanted to read on air and walked off when the network refused to allow it. Not about Thanksgiving but one of the funniest reads ever.

I've never seen this before. Fantastic, especially with the fractured French translations! Kilometres deboutish, indeed!

I agree, Gilbert. I also like "pain comme un étudiant" for "bred as a scholar."

I' m thankful that I live in a country that allows me to be thankful and to share it with others. This time of year is the most positive time of the year besides Christmas.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
