How CIEE Celebrates Thanksgiving


Check out the video above to see how CIEE celebrates Thanksgiving!

Be sure to ask your host family about how they celebrate Thanksgiving. Maybe they:

-          Watch football together

-          Cook a huge meal

-          Get together with extended family members

-          Watch a movie

If your host family does celebrate Thanksgiving, offer to help in whatever way you can! You can also use this time to share some of your own family traditions with your host family.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
