Thanksgiving 2017 Photo Round Up

American Thanksgiving traditions usually include a huge turkey dinner with friends and family, football, Black Friday shopping, and time to reflect and give thanks for the wonderful things in our lives, like awesome host parents and/or the new experiences we have had so far and those still to come! We hope our exchange students enjoyed their first Thanksgiving and had the chance to participate in these great traditions in American culture. Here are some photos from our Thanksgiving 2017 photo round up:
