Giving Thanks When You Don't Feel Like It

True or False: Thanksgiving Day was declared a national holiday during a time of unprecedented conflict and killing among brothers.

(Isn't this an intriguing photo?  Lincoln stands a head taller than the soldiers, yet he has great posture and wears a tall top hat.  In our age, we're hiding our physical quirks.  He's thankful for his!)

LOL (Laughing out loud) ®

starring Sophie Marceau and Christa Theret
It’s a familiar theme—teens and relationships—yet presented à la French.  Mothers bathe with their girls; the high school facilities are to laugh (or cry) out loud; and the boys’ hairdos frighteningly resemble reality!

Lola’s enticement by romance, sex, alcohol and drugs (and disinterest in schoolwork) brings her mother to confront herself… Director Lisa Azuelos successfully conveys the faults and charms of both generations.

Like most teens, Lola’s life centers around experiential adventures with her friends—both guys and girls. My teen boys related to this movie as easily as I did.

Cultural Misunderstandings: The French-American Experience

by Raymonde Carroll
Raymonde Carroll presents an intriguing and entertaining analysis of the many ways French and Americans—and indeed any members of different cultures—can misinterpret each other, even when ostensibly speaking the same language. Cultural misunderstandings can arise even where we least expect them—in our closest relationships. (That’s why we received this book as a wedding gift!)

The revealing vignettes sensitize the readers to fundamental differences in French and American presuppositions about love, friendship, and raising children, as well as using the telephone or asking for information.

Cultural Misunderstandings is NOT the absolute guide to why the French or Americans are weird. It is an effective tool to develop awareness of cultural differences and to replace annoyance (“Why is she so ______?!”) with understanding (“Could that behavior stem from a cultural difference?”)
