Beaujolais Nouveau


For Americans, the fourth Thursday in November is special each year. In France, it's the third Thursday in November that's an anticipated date. No, there's no Thanksgiving here... it's when the beaujolais nouveau are released for sale...

Today will likely be a bit tough for some French workers... According to the Orléans newspaper, a lot of soirées were planned last night in the city and surrounding villages. These young wines are often shared among friends. They're never expensive, usually less than 8€ a bottle. This one was just 3.48€ ($4.73).

Not sure who the head of the product naming department is for this company, but he surely doesn't get my vote for Employee of the Year....
