International Travel Over Thanksgiving? Here Are Some Non-Americans’ Funny & Fascinating Thoughts About Thanksgiving Dinner

There’s nothing odder than trying to celebrate what you consider to be a national holiday in a place where they don’t celebrate it. Well, that is unless you’re a visitor to a place that’s celebrating a holiday you have little to no idea about and suddenly you have all kinds of new and different traditions and foods to contend with.

And then you have the holidays where a visitor may be experiencing a national holiday for the first time – your friend from Italy visits during Hanukkah or a distant relative from Qatar is in town during Halloween – and they get to experience the foods and traditions they’ve never known before…or thought they knew 😉

That’s what I was thinking about when I was perusing through YouTube the other day, and in the process, I found a handful of adults’ first experiences with Thanksgiving. They’re pretty fun…take a look!

Note: Some of these videos may be NSFW, with possible adult language.
