French Culture

Chapter Three


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


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.


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