What makes summertime so special is hanging out with friends for a drink, a dinner or a barbecue, a tradition shared in both, the US and France.
French people enjoy gathering friends and cooking on their own, special dishes and refined recipes for their friends. Typical French dinners are known for their endless chatting and good food around a friendly table.
Whereas dinners in the US tend to start between 6 and 7pm, in France they generally start around 8.30pm and end past midnight.
Dinners are a major setting for inviting friends however here, in the US, people are remarkable for organizing memorable themed parties at any time of the day or the year. This is especially true for house warming parties, baby showers, tea parties, graduation parties, and the even more creative trunk shows and botox parties.
With so many opportunities, let's enjoy the nice weather and invite friends home to have some good time!
