(Almost) Ready for Christmas

Christmas decorations are up.  Presents have been bought. Cards have been sent. Music is playing nonstop. We’re getting a real tree this week. Vacation starts in 3 weeks. I am so ready for Christmas.

Now where is my snow???

My doigts are croisés that it will look like this in Annecy, but somehow I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Oh well, there’s always next year when I (hopefully) go back to Michigan…

    There was snow in Metz last week, I was so excited, it was so pretty!! (Though driving it in was not so fun.) Did Annecy not get any of that storm? Hopefully there’s some more coming before the end of the year!

    It’s a little foreign here too-60 degrees, no pumkin pies, and this substitute for stuffing called “dressing” cooked outside of the bird! But at least there was a bird. Sorry you had to miss another Thanksgiving.

    Normally I’m such a grinch about Christmas time (that whole Jewish thing) but I really miss all of the lights and the music and the Santas here. Did you see that it’s already snowed like eight times in Michigan this year? I’m hoping they’ll send some to us!

    Even in Canada, we barely have snow. Nothing like last year, for sure.

    Whenever it snows here, it also rains, so it never sticks. :(

    My parents got like 8 inches Monday and the schools were closed. I’m so jealous!!!

    I’ve just noticed another difference btw British and US English … you say “stick” to talk about snow but we always say “settle”!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
