Thanksgiving Overseas

Hosted by

Thanksgiving Day is just another Thursday for most of the world, but it's still a powerful moment for Americans living abroad. Whatever their reasons for being out of the country, Thanksgiving means thinking about who they are and what matters most.  We talk with Americans in Germany, Spain, China, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Do they try to celebrate the most uniquely American of holidays?  Can they find turkeys? What do new friends and neighbors have to say?  How do these Americans abroad compare their native country to the rest of the world?
