French Culture

Chapter Three

Shopping

Many people in French speaking countries still buy groceries at small neighborhood shops rather than supermarkets

Meals

Usually lunch and dinner are made up of several courses: appetizer, main course, salad, cheese, and dessert. An appetizer could be cold cuts, salad, or a soup. The main course is meat or seafood. Usually, a wide variety of meats and vegetables will be encountered. Dinner is usually a light meal, consisting of eggs and little to no meat.

Celebrations

Much like the U.S. , French New Year's celebrations are usually held with friends and Christmas celebrations are held with family members.
